3D Maps Of Tube Stations

After our own 3D Tube map effort, the shift towards adding a third dimension to your commuting experience continues… the layout of several stations on the Underground have been rendered in 3D in these excellent maps by Andrew Godwin.

As Andrew notes, the maps were drawn from “a combination of memory and a diagram or two I’ve managed to find on the internet” and hence might not be entirely correct, but they offer a fascinating glimpse at the warren of tunnels that even the most humble station contains.

Eight stations have been modelled so far, and Andrew is looking for help in adding more to the list. We’ve put screenshots of a few in the gallery above; see if you can guess which they are.

    Incredibly impressive work! I’ve always wanted to see how these stations all laid out. I can’t wait to see more of them. :)

    Are the first 2 King’s Cross and Oxford Circus?

    I love this. I’ve tried doing this in my head a few times, but never got as far as sketchup. What on earth happened to make Old Street be laid out the way it is. Bizarre.

    I always know the first one as Kings Cross, because if you head from the Victoria to the H+C/Circle/Met platforms instead of towards the signposted exit on the platforms it saves a lot of time ;)

    By my reckoning: King’s Cross St. Pancras, Oxford Circus, Shadwell, Bank-Monument and, er… Leicester Square?

    I’m mostly cheating by looking at the line colours, mind you. (Although the Bank-Monument complex is highly recognisable anyway!)
