just realised after watching all the videos... the tshirt worn by geoff corresponds to the tube line colour he is talking about...clever

Try these for a different approach to filming on the tube: https://www.youtube.com/channe...

Not sure how helpful it is to have those 'mistakes' in all of the other videos. Have they been updated or are they, essentially, wrong and misleading?

No Secrets of the Magical Robot Skytrain?!

I don't want to be a troll about this, but that was just a series of terrible ideas that were poorly executed. This isn't your thing, I feel I have to tell you this as you seem so smugly convinced that what you've done is genius...it absolutely isn't.

So excited about the future disused tube station video! Have they let you film in Aldwych?

I really enjoyed these films. Thanks so much for taking the time to do them. Cheers!

:D thanks for the series Geoff. I did (early on) notice the changing shirts and the maps (but not that they were getting older, just different), as I used to work on the W&C I knew the two facts you mentioned and that I also mentally queried the Vic line video about being only one completely underground! Enjoyed each of the videos and little factoids I could squirrel away. Cheers.

The sump, locate roughly in the middle of the W&C to put out Thames water that seeps in is known as Queen Vic. Pity no mention of the Travelator though.

Rob Barnes

Thanks for making a great series of videos, Geoff... Sad that it's all over :(
Did you ever use the W&C on any of your tube challenge attempts?
You're right in saying it's a forgotten line, I forget it exists. Maybe TfL should make it fluorescent pink on the tube map.

How about a tube wildlife film (excluding rats though)

Hi Geoff,
I really enjoyed learning about the underground from your videos. However, the unhelpful 'mistakes' were confusing and not interesting

What about the obvious error in this one? The crane shown wasn't used to lift the carriages in and out. A much larger crane was used http://www.london-se1.co.uk/ne...

We could also mention this was once upon a time the only bit of "British Rail" that counted as the tube - and indeed, the tubes were painted in late, lamented Network South East colours. We could also mention the lovely old (and cramped, tiny and uncomfortable) trains that ran on this line for 50-odd years.

Does the W&C line count as "entirely underground" when those trains in the video are in the open air? (And so not that different from the Victoria Line?)

I've been trying to figure out if it's actually possible to go on all eleven lines once without repeating them or leaving the Underground and end up back where you started, using Waterloo as the start and end point. The W&C obviously has to be either first or last. I think first because that gives you a choice of routes back. Unfortunately that means changing at Bank, which is too much in the middle of the map to give you much room to maneuver. My conclusion so far, is No, it can't be done. But I'll keep trying.
