    He's certainly an enthusiastic fella for all things trains and tube that Geoff Marshall. You have to admire his dedication.

    at a tangent, when the northern line was still two separate lines, the southern terminus of the charing cross, euston and hampstead railway, at charing cross (now embankment) was also a loop - the northbound platform at embankment was the terminus hence being on a bloody tight curve.

    the bit of line under the thames was plugged at each end during WW2 to prevent risk of flooding due to bomb damage
