    Modular London Tube Station

    created by Ayliffe on 2013.02.25

    The London Underground system in London is the oldest ones in the world, and it hauls many of
    us to work or home. With a lego modular underground set, you could recreate rush hour or building works in your home!
    This is the set that I am proposing:

    This set would include five commuters to travel on the trains to various other stations. The station itself features:

    ~The classic roundel image on the back wall!
    ~A speaker for announcements!
    ~Erm...
    ~SEATS!!!

    One main feature of the entire set is that its actually modular from two angles, as you can see from the back of the model:

    The holes at the bottom are there so that you could connect this to a corridor set (an add on pack perhaps?) or alongside another platform to make one extended platform. This set could also have included a wall with a tube map printed on it and a white help point mounted on a wall (usually out of service) to please collectors that don't really want a platform with loads of doors.

    This set doesn't need any new parts at all, but I would like a few printed parts and plates to make this set really detailed. One of them is a free METRO, which can be seen below:

    In case you didn't know, the METRO is a free newspaper that is given out in London and is a key part of many Londoners lives, so there should be at least one printed METRO piece.You could substitute this paper for a standard Lego newspaper, but I really would prefer a METRO to make this set more life-like.

    I'll update this project a bit more when I've got more time, but feel free to suggest ways to improve this.

    Some people (AKA no-one) has asked me about the lack of trains in the current version. I haven't done one yet, but I literally haven't had the time to do it, so I'll have to replace it with this picture for the moment:
