On a recent trip to London I managed to grab (from the train from Cambridge to Liverpool Street) a shot of the Victoria Line's Northumberland Park tube train depot.
Not a great shot - I had to scrabble for the camera as usual!
Here's another snatched shot - before the doors closed - of part of Baker Street Station. I must try to get round all the Underground stations at some time (perhaps when I've retired) as there are some gems of Victoriana to be found. A better shot of Baker Street Station was the other side of the tracks (this was from the Circle/Hammersmith and City line). Unfortunately another train was in the way.
Not all Underground lines and stations are underground. The early sub-surface lines such as this one used the cut-and-cover method of construction.
Who'd like to join me in an exploration of the Underground? (I can't imagine it would appeal to Jan!) I'd have to cover every inch of the network (much as I'd like to do the entire connected inland waterway system eventually!) but not all in one day. I don't suppose you can get Rover tickets these days, but I'd just take my Oyster card to the max...
Thoughts on a Narrowboat Part 2–Bow and Cratch - The longer I researched continuously cruising the more convinced I became the boat would need a sizeable storage capacity for fuel, potable water and sew...
