Travelling Underground

Image showing Travelling UndergroundTravelling with strangers underground, concerns with safety and efficiency: some things have not changed in a century of underground travel.
However there have been many improvements. These include ticketing procedures and carriage design. For much of the century tickets were checked by hand. A fully automated system was only introduced for the whole Underground network in the 1990s.

The 1938 tube stock established a classic look for London Transport tube trains for the next 25 years. They were technically more advanced than their predecessors and carried thousands of Londoners to work in comfort every day.
