Priority seat and fabric design, London Underground
Priority seat and fabric design, London Underground
Woven into the moquette fabric of a seat is a diagram showing a pregnant woman, a woman carrying a child, and a man with a stick. The rest of the fabric design, here shown on a Central Line train, is a repeating pattern showing London landmarks. The bright red circle is the London Eye, with the dome of St Paul's cathedral. The blue disk in a red square is Big Ben clockface. Least obvious, white triangles are the tops of support towers of Tower Bridge.
London Underground
The London Underground system is also known as the "Tube". It is the oldest underground system in the world, the first section dating from 1863. The present system has over 250 miles of track and 270 stations. There are 11 lines covering Greater London, Essex, Buckinghamshire & Hertfordshire. Nearly half the system is above ground.
