Looking All the Way Down a Train


I’ve just started to take a new route on the Underground and, lo and behold: the train doesn’t have any interconnecting doors. There are different carriages, sure, but there aren’t any actual doors between them. This means that you can see right the way down the train, technically. Usually there are some people in the way, and it’s hard to stand inconspicuously in the middle of the carriage whilst your friends are sitting down on the empty seats.

You can’t really feel when the train turns on the Underground, but when there are no interconnecting doors you can see when the carriages before you turn. It can give you a headache if you look for too long, but otherwise it’s pretty awesome.

Have you ever been on a train like this one? I didn’t know they existed until a few weeks ago!

  1. I know these trains! The last time I was on one though, it was about 8 o’clock on a Saturday night, and it was packed with drunk people – I therefore am not really a fan of them anymore…

  2. The only time I can remember going on a train like this was when I was going to a foreign country. There weren’t many people on it – just a few sitting down reading or listening to music.

  3. we only got our first one about two years ago? Its great when you want to get away from people…or find a less crowded place. At the same time, you can’t get away from people if they follow you :T
