What about the Waterloo and City Line??

The Orange One beat me to it

Thank you Geoff (and helpers!) for all your amusing, informative and enjoyable videos on the lines - I have enjoyed each of them and it has given me plenty to go, find and experience for myself. Cheers!

The line was supposed to be extended from the current Watford station into the High St. The ticket hall was built & is now the Moon Under Water pub


It really annoys me that I've never been on the Metropolitan Line. It's the only line I've never used, except for the Waterloo and City and I intend to rectify that one next time I go to London, the Metropolitan Line is not so easily rectified because it doesn't go anywhere I have any reason to be. Some day I shall have to go on it just for the sake of going on it or it's going to bug me forever.

I was privileged to have ridden The Underground about six years ago on a trip from the US to visit my cousins in London. What a wonderful segment on the Metropolitan Line! I will watch your reporting on the previous lines as well. I caught this one because my cousin was kind enough to share it on Facebook. It gave me an opportunity to share what I saw with my kids. Thanks from the US!
