I believe its the main busy lines that cross central London............Northern, Central, Jubilee, Piccadilly and Victoria...........though I don't think all the stations will be 24 hours.

By 'trains' do you mean 'tube trains' and would you mean just the London tube?

Why? Don't you realise that it's only London that matters?

Much less hassle than other methods.

A gang could easily trap their target in a remote part of the station and at 4am there won't be many people around. It's worth remembering that some stations are huge but you might not see any potential danger when you're passing through during the rush hour like sardines.

You can't really trap someone in public like this.

That can't be reliable, weekends are when they close huge swathes of the network for 'engineering works'.

Tube modernisation has been happening for years - but it is great that it is still going ahead under the current Mayor. What isn't so good is the closure of all ticket offices - something the Mayor pledged against doing in the Mayoral election.

Despite claims that stations will be staffed, I doubt that they will be to an adequate level - given that the plans are to reduce the workforce by 750 people. It is a shame that this important aspect of Londoner's lives is being axed while the Mayor continually squanders money on silly pet projects.
