From My London - addressed (one assumes) to the typical Londoner:

Quote
3 other UK (United Kingdom) cities you might not have realised also have an underground Tube system

The Tube is something you think can only ever exist in London. The grumbling, disgruntled disposition of everyone in the tunnels and onboard.

The pollution and soot that ends up in your nose even if you wear a mask.

The sweat from being on the London Underground that becomes the trademark smell of London summer.

But UK undergrounds are not limited to just London, and there are actually three other UK cities which have a Tube of their own - it just might not be nicknamed that so you wouldn't have known.

No forgetting former London Underground stock operating on the Isle of White and Alderney....although above ground admittedly.

Do they not realise they travel in the dry and warmth? Very different to getting the bus from Northumberland Avenue (Reading’s version) terminus. I guess they also don’t realise that they have the best transport system in the country.

Underground section in Ryde  Grin - tight tunnels meaning that train size is limited like on the tube!

Mind you - ex London Underground (or any other stock) is not operating on the Isle of Wight at the moment!
