New video in the series from Londonist, of Secrets of the Underground … Geoff takes us round some spots on the tube again that you might not have known about.
New video by Station Master Geoff, which explains everything you need to know about Crossrail in 2 minutes. There’s also an interactive poll embedded within the video where you can say whether you like the name ‘Elizabeth Line’, or not …
Station Master Geoff’s been out and recorded another video in the ‘Secrets of..’ series! This time, he’s gone to Croydon to look at the tram network.
Take ten people, a few tubs of Quality Street containing a few thousand brightly coloured wrapped chocolates – and you can make a Tube map out of them! Like this …
Those nice people over at City Hacks London, have produced a second in their series of Hacks on the Tube, and given a nice plug to Station Master – so this is us also giving them a mention to watch their fun video too!

There is a great Tube-themed video article on the BBC website today where they’ve followed the route of the Victoria line up on the streets, whilst mirroring the journey with a shot from the cab underground, and spoken/interviews with people along the way to reflect the wide diversity of people and languages along the route.
“The video below combines footage shot from a Victoria Line train, synchronised with its route above ground. The soundtrack echoes the most widely spoken language, after English, at each stage of the route. The underground journey takes just over 30 minutes, but we have condensed the footage into three minutes.”
What’s this? A new video in this series .. hurrah! Yes, Geoff’s been back out on the network, to make Bonus Secrets of the Underground. Give it a play!
We’ve long been subscribers of the excellent CityTransportInfo on YouTube, where there’s more video of trains and stations than you can shake a stick at. But the videos that we really like that get put up are the ‘contrasts’ ones that show you how a station used to look many years ago, cut with footage of how it looks now.
One that recently got put up, is that of Westminster. Think of the sub-surface lines now at that station – they got rebuilt when the Jubilee Line Extension came through in 1999, so can you remember how it used to look?
An old Victorian ticket hall, original tiling, wooden banisters – it’s very similar to St. James’s Park and Temple – with one big distinction – it’s in the open! Daylight streams in from above, unlike now. Give it a play for a fascinating look of how it used to be.
Some great new British Movietone shorts have been uploaded to YouTube, many featuring the Underground, like the ones we found below.
Station Master’s Geoff & Matt went out with a video camera, an Apple Watch and an iPhone to see how Apple Pay works paying for your travel using your mobile devices. Here’s the video we did for Londonist …
