    Very clever, but none of the 'trains' ever appear to stop?

    How come there's no line through Swindon? There's a train every 10 mins or so...

    Ummmmm...Sippo....I think you'll find that around "Swindon" there is a dimension rip. You can get in and out but no information will ever escape!

    The trains aren't actually real either....Just a figment of your fevered imagination!!!!

    Tbh the tubes don't stop that long so the map probably doesn't have time to reflect the 30 seconds they are in the stations?

    Yeh in some stations you can as they are not that deep, and obviously some underground lines are actually not under ground.
