I was just sent this link on Twitter of Deeper Underground by In Return and was completely mesmerised by it! Stop what you’re doing and watch…
We have a thing with tunnels. The underground of London is one of the most impressive infrastructures of the world. It’s a network that transports millions of people every day. Some call it hell. We see beauty.
The infinite tunnels pull us in with their symmetry. The ceiling lights guide our eyes to the horizon. The tiles and posters form patterns that please the eye. The echoes of rushing crowds, a flickering light, a train zooming by.
We’ve spent days in the underground looking for the most eye-catching tunnels and made this supercut, capturing the beautiful symmetry underneath the city surface.

This week Geoff and Vicki’s All The Stations adventure began in deepest darkest Cornwall. In the unlikely event that you’ve arrived at this blog without any prior knowledge of the All The Stations project then here’s what it’s all about:
All The Stations is a project for Geoff and Vicki to travel to ALL the national railway stations in Britain in just three months, and to create an online documentary film about the journey. Geoff is a freelance video editor and transport vlogger, Vicki is a museum education professional. Our transport videos already published online have accumulated over 6 million views on Youtube, but in this latest project the aim is to capture the current status of Britain’s railways, and bring them to life as we explore the reality of the places and people we encounter along the way.
The project was predominantly crowdfunded by Geoff and Vicki’s subscribers and in return they offered backers various rewards for pledging money towards the documentary. One of the most popular rewards on offer was the chance to ‘adopt’ one of the 2563 railway stations in Great Britain.
So let me tell you about my adopted station, Huddersfield.
As you may know we visited Downham Market this week to take a look at the fantastic NSE style refurbishment. This will form the basis for a follow up video to “In Search Of Network SouthEast,” which I intend to get edited in the next 2-3 weeks. In the meantime check out the Periscope we did from Downham Market below…
Don’t forget to keep sending in your pictures of NSE signage and infrastructure to @CASRailwayBlog and I’ll feature them in the video!
