I don't know if I like this quiz, cause I can see myself becoming addicted to it. It's a great quiz, well thought out, and contains a lot of information. The only thing, could you think of giving us a little more time?

A lot of good research has gone into this quiz though I tend to agree more time would be good. I didn't even get to read all the questions, let alone answer them. One of the later questions I only saw after time is about stations where both doors open - this also happens at Morden, though only on some platforms. And I think the Victoria line joins the W&C as being all underground, at least on the passenger sections.

Didn't Realise this particular quiz would be as popular as it seems to be, going to modify this quiz soon due to new research and more interesting tidbits I have found, thank you for enjoying playing it! the time limit will be increased

The Victoria line is also wholly underground. I have taken it from Walthamstow Central all the way to Brixton before – so I know!

And surely "Heathrow Terminal Four" also contains all the vowels? Please amend!
Level 37

This would not be correct as the London Underground have the "Four" in this station as the number 4 at stations, tube maps etc. Meaning there is no "u" in this station.

What the quiz maker clearly means by wholly, is not just the track it carries passengers on. The Victoria Line is all in tunnels, however there is a depot for the Victoria Line above ground, whereas the Waterloo & City Line does not have a depot above ground therefore being wholly underground.

But the depot is above ground, so it is not wholly underground.
