• More Secrets Of The Underground

    164,147 views 5 months ago
    Geoff goes out onto the network, this time pointing out old lines, bad grammar, stations that could have been, and -- of course -- how there are always signs that show the wrong number of steps ...

    There's more about the South Harrow gasworks here: http://southharrowthenandno...

    Geoff doesn't really have tube map tiles in his bathroom, but oh my - here's someone that does: https://www.youtube.com/wat...

    Well done for opening up the description and reading this bit! Not everyone does. There's no game to play this time, or a particular thing to type, but do feel free to leave us a comment if you have enjoyed!

    Note that will also be no Secrets of the Crossrail until at least 2018 (that's when it opens, and therefore is impossible to do until then), and we have no plans to do Secrets of the Buses either.

    Northern City Line or Thameslink still remain a possibility though!
