I really like the underground,although Oxford Circus at rush hour is a bit much :o,popping down at one place and reappearing 5 min's later the other side of the city,maybe I'm a bit strange  :czy: :czy: ;D ;D

Bethnal Green, one of my regular stations before I moved from London, thanks for jogging my memory of these wonderful tiles I saw quite often.
