    The district line is generally slow/always got maintenance on though. Bank just takes forever to walk through, which ever way you go, I find.
    Hmm that's due to the upgrade worjs-preparing for the new traind!

    Well I'm guessing Ruislip, but could be Ickenham as well
    Well you'd be right, well technically Eastcote, but my official address says so Ruislip...

    Circle and district or northern

    Circle and district are possibly the most annoying, difficult train lines ever!!!!!!

    I live 5 minutes away from my tube station, which is towards the end of the Central Line. Can't really complain.

    Depends upon where I am going. It is usually a C2C train from an undisclosed location in Essex to West Ham and then either:

    - The Jubilee line to Canary Wharf (sometimes I'll stay on the C2C to Limehouse and use the DLR); or
    - The District/Hamersmith and City line to Mile End and then the Central Line to Holborn.

    Don't forget how they use to practically bounce between King Cross and Seven Sisters!


    And the 'emergency braking' that was the normal way to break! (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sNqKnfT52tw)

    That clip brings back memories <3

    And the trains felt fast too!
    I even loved the commentary too!

    I loved the Victoria line with a passion- I missed those trains

    'please move right down inside the car' It was superb!
    If I was in charge the money spent on the silly new trains would have been spent extending the Victoria line to Streatham!
    Ahh see, I wouldn't know that because I never usually take the Victoria line past Oxford Circus - which is strange as I used to take the bus to King's Cross often.. why didn't I take the train?

    ANYWAYS, Ahhhhhh I miss that lady "Please move down inside the car" and she used to say "Brixton" funny. Loved it, loved it.

    Ah nah, I'm not agreeing with you on that. It's only right it terminates at Brixton. I LOVE being able to board either platform to take me Northbound; I don't want a southbound from Brixton! Anyways Streatham has those ugly 'Southern' trains and the even worse 'First Capital Connect' trains. They need to replace them as they are so bad.

    But yeah!

    Yeah- they're having problems getting funding!

    They also want to change the Piccadilly line trains too!

    I think they should extend the bakerloo line and victoria without wasting money painting stations and new trains

    The Northern Line will be upgraded by next year
    The Piccadilly line is... okay; it doesn't need upgrading. It's the central line - they need to replace those 1992 stock trains, not change the windows!!!!

    And I totally agree with you, they 'renovate' lots of stations, but.. do they REALLY seem different?

    The Bakerloo line should definitely be extended; I'm sure it can go as far as Lewisham (I hope it does; I'd be using that line FAR more than I do now lol).

    Unfortunately TfL seems to prioritise style over substance- look at the millions spent on the new bus for London!


    I love the central line trains-their relatively long-they got 43 years out of the Victoria line trains! To be honest they don't necessarily really ned to replace any trains for while!

    The bakerloo line is unlikely to reach Lewisham because you guys already have the DLR and national rail!

    If someone like me becomes mayor of London or I charge of TfL things would change!

    Ideally Brixton should have 4 platforms

    2 in each direction allowing trains to terminate at Brixton if necessary

    Yeah-they had good seating!


    But they didn't have a commentary like the old Victoria line trains did

    Yes King's Cross to Liverpool Street/Aldgate is good

    Though KGX station is boring
    St Pancras is boring too, despite much fanfare when it opened for the eurostar.
