    Here is the plan. Two routes, One via the Waterloo Tunnel which dropped in favour of the Wapping Tunnel. The work actually started and was abandoned - the header tunnels were bored to a few metres deep at Central Station. Abandoning this ciry centre to Edge Hill Link was a massive mistake. It prevented the east of the city electric rail access to city centre.


    Below: The Northern line tunnel was dropped to run underground in the 1970s. It took a part of the top space of the Wapping Tunnel. This is not a problem if the tunnel is to be reused as the tackbed can be dropped to run under the obstruction.

    There are some threads on the site about this. Waterways has a few maps I think. Try a search on railways. If I get time I will have a look for you and let you know.

    They cleared the Waterloo Tunnel to keep vermin down. They also did the same at the Kirkdale-Rice Lane flyover tunnel as well.

    Speak of words like rapid-transit metro and socio/economic benefits. Examples of of the London Docklands and Jubilee line encouraging investment.

    They take not notice to train spotters/enthusiasts and trainspeak.
