Cooling the Tube

I recently rode the tube (London Underground) during super hot temperatures and the mechanisms to keep it cool in the face of some complex problems are pretty fascinating.

Axonometric Tube

Transport for London has released 124 axonometric diagrams of underground stations. Looking at stations you've walked through thousands of times is still a little confusing.

The Circle Line

One the one hand, it looks terrible. However, London Underground Simulator (Circle Line) is so detailed in all the right ways that I just want to play it. For hours.

Watch part 2 and then buy yourself a copy.

Map Radio

I was sure I had posted this earlier, but the Yuri Suzuki Tube Map radio is excellent.

Particularly like some of the modified station names; Oxford Circuit, Earl's Coil, Clapham Jumper, etc.
