No - just my wording;  "full series" of pictures.  I was also thinking (I suppose) of Geoff Marshall's "Secrets of the $%^& line" series on YouTube.

Are those pictures in order?
1. on the train
2. Bank
3. Waterloo
4. I don't recognise those stairs. Possibly the other exit from the W&C line (at Waterloo) that I don't use.
5-8 Bank
9. Waterloo

They're not in the order taken.   

Yes - the the 4th picture is at Waterloo having come off the rear of the platform on the arriving train and tapped out.
