Tube watch (5)This week terminates here
I wasn't sure whether an entire week devoted to the London Underground was a good idea or not. As it turns out, I needn't have worried. Either you lot out there are as obsessed with the tube as I am, or you've kept coming back to see how much lower I could sink. I'm stopping now and going back to whatever 'normal' on diamond geezer is, but I think I have enough material to try hosting another tube week sometime. Just not soon, OK?
To finish, here are some tube-related websites I've discovered this week, or used to aid my research:
• Geoff's selection of silly tube maps, including a rude version, an upside-down version, a German version, a geographically realistic version, a motorway version, a blank version and a version without the Central line.
• Rodcorp's Walklinesmap, showing all the stations less than 500m apart at ground level.
• Owen's Mappers Delight page, which links to more than 30 different webpages about the London tube map.
• A London Underground report from a few years ago, with a zoom-in-able ultra-detailed geographical tube map on the back cover, plus tons of journey-related statistics.
• Clive's UndergrounD line guides - his anorak is bigger than mine.
• The official London Underground webpage, with a lot of statistics hidden beneath the surface.
• Transport plans for the London area, which hasn't been updated for a couple of years but is fascinating all the same.
• The h2g2Ultimate Guide to the London Underground, an eclectic selection of facts, observations and trivia.
• Tube Prune, the Underground seen from a tube driver's point of view.
• Proposals to introduce Business Class and Cattle Class on the new-tube.
• Tons of stuff on disusedtube stations (but that's for next time...)
