Known errata

As of August 2013, known problem areas where more research needs doing.

  • Bakerloo/Jubilee: stacked cross-platform interchange at Baker Street (needs double-tracking)
  • Bakerloo: more smooth wiggle past BBC Broadcasting House
  • District/Circle: Mark Lane—Tower Hill—Aldgate South, this is a smooth arc.
  • Northern Line Charing Cross Branch: Kennington—Waterloo: northbound is a straighter line, passing closer/under the Imperial War Museum, not Kennington Road. Should be able to peg it from the MTV next to the cafe
  • Bakerloo: London Road Depot: which spur is the tunnel and which is the headshunt?
  • Bakerloo: Embankment—Waterloo—Lambeth North: Stacked tubes crossing Belvedere Road and around the corner to Waterloo
  • Waterloo & City: Doubling required and depot redrawing (shorter, but covers area much further to south of the crane 'hole' which is at the north edge)
  • Waterloo & City: Old spur tunnel to the former lift under Waterloo International
  • Jubilee Line Extension: Hugs the mainlines much more closely under the viaduct sections and only pops out for London Bridge which cuts across the bus-station.
  • Northern Line: Bank branch: doubling, new tunnels and left-hand running Borough—Bank—Moorgate
  • DLR Bank branch: Doubling and curvature (transcribed from cab view videos as too new to be out of copyright), and junction before headshunt
  • Central Line: Cheapside/St. Paul's stacked tubes through wiggle
  • Central Line: Chancery Lane: Stacked Tubes, and Kingsway Telephone exchange underneath
  • Central Line: Shepherd's Bush—Bank: move under roads
  • Piccadilly Line: Earl's Court—West Kensington: hugs insides of District Lines on the two curves (both ways)
  • Northern Line: Charing Cross branch: Embankment old terminal curve: make more circular
  • Jubilee Line: Green Park—Bond Street: Green Park platforms are a little more horizontal, curvature after station is sharper, and then more straight up to Bond Street
  • Victoria Line: KX-STP—Highbury & Islington: move the tube crossover further west to the straight section
  • Jubilee Line: Strand: fix length of overrun tunnels
  • Bakerloo: Elephant & Castle: fix length of overrun sidings; add disused original tunnels up New Kent Road
  • Victoria: Walthamstow: fix length, and direction of sidings
  • Jubilee Line Extension: Bermondsey angles: …too new to be out of copyright
  • Victoria Line: Seven Sisters—Tottenham Hale: straighten past MTV
  • Victoria Line: Blackhorse Road platform angle
  • Overground: extraneous track included norther of New Cross Gate
  • Northern Line: London Bridge new cut-off
  • Northern Line: Bank new cut-off
  • Northern Line: Angle new cut-off
  • Northern Line: Hampstead—North End alignment
  • Central Line: Shoreditch High Street—Bethnal Green—Carlton Square: flatter through and past station, and sharper turn down towards Globe Road/Carlton Square
  • Victoria Line: BBC Broadcasting House: northbound under new extension
  • Metropolitan: Euston Road underpass/Warren Street, hugs the buildings on the south side more closely
  • Northern Line Charing Cross branch: Drummond Street/Warren Street, curve radius is more gentle.
  • Northern Line Bank Branch: Old Street: disused third centre siding
  • Bakerloo: Elephant & Castle: disused third centre-siding centre siding
  • Euston: Northern Line Bank branch: disused third southerly siding (in addition to Euston Loop)
  • King's Cross: Victoria Line: third centre-siding
  • Central Line: Liverpool Street:
  • Northern Line: Tooting Broadway: third centre siding
  • Piccadilly: Down Street: Third centre siding (double length)
  • Central Line: Queensway: siding
  • Central Line: Marble Arch: siding
  • Central LIne: British Museum/TCR: centre-siding
