    I like Central because it's red and it's the only one I've been on almost end to end, and I quite like the outside bits. I like District because it's green and I hardly ever get it so it's exciting. I like Northern because it's the one I'm most familiar with. Oh and Picadilly for memories (live 8, rhcp and also the Spanish exchange laughing at cockfosters)
    hahahaha I always laugh at cockfosters as well!!

    Worst is Victoria. I had to get it whilst going to Brighton, to go to South London. It was packed and crappy.
    New trains will start to emerge on the Victoria Line starting this Autumn, and then at 1 new train every two weeks until the entire stock is replaced.

    This will be a big improvement for the Victoria Line :yes:

    Circle cause I like sitting there and going round and round, just reading. Much better than the other lines for that, really.

    All those people who like the Northern line, are you ******* crazy? It's the busiest, most delayed, most cramped, ******, etc. It's a hell hole stuffed into a sardine tin.

    I chose Jubilee as it passes all important stations and runs from the imminent Olympic site through Canary Wharf to London Bridge through the West End. The trains are smart and clean, although some delays can be noticed! Stations are best on whole underground bar none - Canary Wharf or Westminster for example.

    Northern - too over-crowded due to the fork.
    Central - quick trains that brake late, but always delays!
    District/Central/H&C/Met - one line goes down - they all go down!
    Bakerloo - no point. London Overground does half of it.
    Piccadilly - yeah I like. Not better than Jubilee though.
    Victoria - horrid, noisy, constant engineering works and all underground through tunnels!
    DLR - Cool, but over-crowded and too slow.
    W&C - cool as it's needed
    EL - No point. Who the hell wants to go SE London?



    loooolll thats funny

    I love being on the Northern line, it usually means I'm going to see Arsenal (either at the Emirates or Barnet). :love: :arsenal:

    Northern Line for Arsenal? :confused:

    You walk from Archway back down towards the Emirates or do you change trains for something a bit nearer?

    Bakerloo, because it's the only line to my house, is quick, and takes me straight to central.

    Circle line is crap because it takes agggges, but I did go on the Circle line party a few yrs back, which was hillarious. :top:

    Northern Line ftw. You can from Barnet to Morden really fast. There's also a St. Pancras / Kings Cross station on it so you can jump straight on to the Eurostar for Paris.

    It doesn't take long to get to stations like Bank and Victoria if you're commuting from somewhere like Clapham. It's just an awesome line.

    East London Line is dead anyway.

    When it reopens next Summer it will be part of the London Overground, running from Dalston Junction down to West Croydon, Crystal Palace and New Cross via Shoreditch and Canada Water (on the North and South of the Thames respectively).

    This is a vital link and saves a slow trip and changes from using DLR to either Lewisham/Greenwich.

    The new trains for the East London bit of the Overground, will be the same as the new Class 378 that was running around between Richmond and Stratford today (378005 for those that are into that), and should give a very comfortable, spacious (and air conditioned!) journey.

    why is anyone saying circle ?!!
    Its absolute w**k
    Piccadilly actualy goes places (when its not delayed) and doesnt just do a big annoying loop
    And, strangely enough, come December - nor will the Circle!

    It will run from Hammersmith (H&C Station) to Edgware Road via Shepherds Bush Market, Edgware Road, Kings Cross, Liverpool St, Tower Hill, Victoria, Notting Hill Gate etc.

    This does at least give more trains to people on the Hammersmith to Edgware Road via Shepherds Bush Market bit.

    It will still be called the Circle Line though!
