The tube

The London ‘tube’, possibly the most famous underground train network in the world, seems to have become a tourist attraction in itself. Many foreign visitors to London not only travel on the network but also buy T-shirts and posters printed with the famous tube map, with one of the red, white and blue station signs, or even with the words of one of the loudspeaker messages heard in the tube, ‘Mind the gap’ (which means passengers getting on and off trains should be careful not to step in the gap between the edge of the train floor and the edge of the platform).

The tube’s fame probably has something to do both with its age and its size. It is the oldest underground train network in the world, the first line having been opened in

1863, and many of its 270 stations were built more than 100 years ago. It also has eleven different lines (each with a different colour on the map, producing the famous multi-coloured design) and more kilometres of track (about 400) than any other network in the world.

The name ‘tube’ comes from the circular shape of many of the underground tunnels, although actually more than half of the network is above ground.

Londoners often grumble about the delays on the tube, the amount of time at weekends when lines are closed due to maintenance work, and the fact that the system doesn’t run 24 hours but instead shuts down from shortly after midnight until about 6am. It could be argued, however, that the tube runs quite well considering the age of some of its infrastructure, the number of people it has to carry (over a billion passenger journeys a year) and the fact that the lines have only two tracks (one in each direction), which means that when maintenance work needs to be done there is no alternative track for trains to use.

Though they often wish the tube worked better, it seems Londoners want the famous map to stay exactly as it is. There were complaints recently when the Transport for London (TFL), the organisation that runs the network, published a new, ‘simpler’ design that did not include the light blue stripe representing the River Thames. Many people, including the mayor of London, said it was ridiculous for the map not to show whether stations are on the north or the south side of the river. So many people complained that TFL quickly agreed the Thames would be put back on the map as soon as possible.
