London Subway: Defunct Tube Lines & Current Tube Stops

Early London Tube Routes No Longer in Use

  1. The Vacuum Tube – Antiquated route. Replaced by the Transistor Tube and eventually the Digital Highway
  2. The Fallopian Tube – AKA “The Tunnel of Love.” Getting there was half the fun and once there people didn’t want to leave
  3. The Test Tube – Never got beyond beta. They were always experimenting with this Tube.
  4. The Boob Tube – Fail. Riders watched it instead of riding it
  5. Like Totally Tubular Man – The fact that it was located in San Fernando Valley and not England had more to do with its demise than anything else
