    I vote met line because I've always lived along it and therefore have travelled on it the most. And it's going to be air conditioned from next year

    Central - the I find it the most practical when going into the city + a good service (until someone decides to commit suicide at Liverpool Street/Mile End!!)

    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:
    Are these the new fangled air conditioned ones they're talking about?

    I'm actually excited, it's the line I have to get to Brixton to see my boyfriend

    Air-conditioning will only (for now) be on the new Sub-Surface Line trains when they come out - i.e Circle, H&C and Met; together with the new trains for London Overground.

    New Vic Line train emerges for a late night trial run.

    While I voted District (all the problems are always down the other end of the line to me :p:) I've got a lot of love for the Waterloo and City.

    Metropolitan. It just feels different to other lines and it goes to nice places like Liverpool Street, Uxbridge and Chesham. Plus it has those amazing trains where you can put you feet up on the seats all the way to Hillingdon and fall asleep.

    What an odd question. Anyway, Jubilee fails for closing every weekend for god knows how long.

    I like Victoria because it always stays open during strikes. But obv it's got to be Northern Line, fpr connecting us south of the river to central.

    Closures are to allow for capacity (frequency) improvements, as a result of massive resignalling exercise.

    This scheme is set to be delivered by December 2009.

    Looking at TfLs track closure listings it appears that the last of the closures affecting the Stratford/North Greenwich to Waterloo section is on Saturday 05th September.

    There's then several closures of the Waterloo-Stanmore section, and then gradually scaling back, doing some work on West Hampstead-Stanmore, before the large work is complete.

    A lot of pain, but should eventually be worth it.

    Yeah, too much pain for my liking! I'm sorry, but I'm done with Jubilee. She hurt me too bad.
