london underground current affairs session

London's Underground Tube system is divided up into several Zones in concentric circles from Zone 1 (central London) all the way out to Zone 6 (outer suburbs). Most tourist places are in Zones 1 and 2.

In 2008 the comedy film Three and Out was released, about a Tube train driver who is told that if he witnesses three suicides in a month, he will lose his job, but will receive a large amount of money. ASLEF , the train drivers' union, criticised the film, saying it was insulting and foolish. [14] [15]

Its palette of black, white and grey tones, paired with weathered wood and concrete, allows london underground’s pavement-pounding style to shine through.

The world's first ever underground transport system opened in London in January 1863, and today is still in action and forms part of the Metropolitan line. The 'Tube' as it is commonly known now operates 270 stations across 11 lines and carries more than 1 billion people per year.

Since the majority of the stations that closed in central London were abandoned after 1930, a map of the railways as they existed in 1929, that's been annotated to show which Underground stations have closed or changed their name since that time is available. This page also includes some advertisements from the publication from where the map came from, showing how advertising style and standards have changed.

NOTE: The regular barriers will close immediately after you have stepped through. Do not attempt to have multiple people pass through the barrier on a single ticket, as it will likely close onto the second person. Also, if you have large bags, DO NOT attempt to get them through the regular barriers as they will close onto your bag!
