Went through that site yesterday - fascinating stuff, although London Underground have requested that site be shut down on grounds of security!!! Paranoia methinks

Still in fairness... you could carry out a "Taking of Pelham One Two Three" using a closed station and tunnel stretch to hole up the train in and then use the station to escape........

... and Ghost Houses on the London Underground

Dummy houses in London. When the world's first underground railway was constructed in 1867, two Paddington houses had to be demolished. 'It was decided to build a 5ft-thick facade which matched the houses either side of the break...' http://www.urban75.org/london/leinster.html
