More Images of London Transport.
As a follow up to yesterday’s post (London Underground April 2013—Part 1), I’ve displayed a few more London Underground images made during last week’s trip. I first photographed the Underground at South Kensington back in early 1998, using my Nikon F3T loaded with Fuji slide film. By contrast, all of my images displayed here were exposed digitally, primarily with my Lumix LX-3, although I also made a few with my Canon EOS 7D.
Riding the Underground, what always strikes me is the continual warnings to ‘Mind the Gap!
Trains fit two profiles, the older and larger profile such as that used by Circle, District, and Metropolitan Lines, and the later and lower profile used by ‘Tube’ services. These days many people refer to the whole of the Underground as the ‘Tube,’ (technically only the lines linking tunnels bored through deep clay which the lower profile trains use are ‘Tube lines’). Of course, in addition to subterranean routes, Underground trains also work surface lines and in some places share tracks with Overground and Network Rail trains.
