The London Undergroundis a public metro system serving a large part of Greater London and parts of the surrounding counties. The system serves 270 stations and has 402 kilometres (250 mi) of track, 55 per cent of which is above ground. The network has expanded to 11 lines, and in 2012/13 carried over 1
billion passengers. The system’s first tunnels were built just below the surface using the cut and cover method. Later, circular tunnels –which give rise to its nickname the Tube –were dug through the London Clay at a deeper level.
The early lines were marketed as the UNDERGROUND in the early 20th century on maps and signs at central London stations. Today in official publicity and in general, the term ‘Tube’ embraces the whole Underground system, not just the lines that run in deep-level tunnels. This fascinating jigsaw puzzle combines illustrations from the Haynes Manual with detailed close-ups and facts about the London Underground making it perfect for transport enthusiasts and puzzlers of all ages.
