It’s bit of a grey, rainy day, however we’re at Stanmore station and it’s time to do Secrets of the Jubilee Line. [Geoff! Your shirt!] [This train terminates at Stanmore] First built in 1979, the Jubilee Line is the newest on the London Underground network. It was extended twenty years later in 1999 and although it only has just twenty-seven stations it’s the Tube’s third-busiest line in terms of number of passengers. Stanmore used to have two platforms, but so as to increase the total number of trains running in service a new third platform had to be built. But as it’s a terminus station, you always head to the correct platform for the next departing train. And this means that you never use this. That waiting room there on platform three which I think is the Tube’s most pointless waiting room Because I’ve never seen anybody waiting in it. You’ve probably never been to Queensbury, so next time you do, have a heads-up outside the station at the lovely old dominating roundel in the middle of Queensbury Circus roundabout. Between Wembley Park and Finchley Road, the Metropolitan Line runs alongside the Jubilee. Which means that at some stations, such as here, Willesden Green, you can see old abandoned Met Line platforms… …where the trains no longer stop. They used to. You can also see where the Metropolitan is still controlled by signals and the Jubilee, well, their signals are no longer in use. But the biggest clue of all that Metropolitan Line trains used to stop along here is at our next stop. We’re at Kilburn station, and one of the things I’ve always tried to do in these secrets videos is point out things which the commuter with his head down might otherwise miss. For example, how many times have you been here and never looked up and seen the amazing bridge which references the Metropolitan Railway. It’s also worth noting, that because they’re so close together it can be quicker to change from the Jubilee to the Overground between Kilburn and Brondesbury, rather than at our next stop. The Jubilee Line station at West Hampstead which is of course just a few seconds walk from the Overground station at West Hampstead and thirty seconds down the road again there’s the Thameslink station at West Hampstead. There is a proposal, I’ve seen the plans to link the Overground and the Thameslink together via a footpath. Moving on, and I was getting excited because we were going to one of the stations which I genuinely have a little bit of love for. And I love St Johns Wood for two reasons. The escalators are this beautiful, old, dark colour. And check out this, the Way Out sign and the uplighters. It’s lovely! There’s even a Beatles-themed coffee shop here to cater for the passing trade to the nearby Abbey Road studios. Before 1999, the Jubilee Line used to terminate at Charing Cross. And there are two sets of doors within the station. Some at the bottom of the Northern Line escalators, and here, just along the corridor from the top of the Bakerloo Line platforms where the doors lead through, down to where the Jubilee Line platforms still are today. And on to the Jubilee Line Extension or the JLE as it’s known. All the new stations here have platform edge doors. Here we see them at Westminster. You can’t help but wonder, how the hell did they build this station? With seventeen escalators, it’s just amazing. And hang on… Is there a small government conspiracy going on here? Westminster’s a very complicated and busy station, there’s six entrances and exits at street level. But did you know, if you follow the signs to number three and to the Houses of Parliament, there’s actually a secret revolving door here which takes you into Portcullis House, which in turn, leads you into the Houses of Parliament. Now of all the weird and wonderful things that you can see on the Tube this is one of my favourites. We’re at Waterloo. There is literally an elephant in the room… It’s impossible not to be impressed by the amazing Canary Wharf station. It’s huge, it’s so capacious inside. But most people associate this entrance with, of course, One Canary Wharf and the tower. But did you know that round the back there’s another way in? And to get there, we’ll take a quick speeded-up walk through the appropriately named Jubilee Park. Entrance number two of Canary Wharf station. And if that isn’t enough to boggle your mind, there’s a third way in over there! Now in case that didn’t actually boggle your mind, I’ll get you with this next fact. No, it’s not the thing that here at Canary Wharf, commuters queue up nicely during rush hour, or that at platform level, these are the largest roundels you can find. No, it’s this. I’ve got to talk in hushed tones now for the piéce de resistance, this is it. This is the best thing about the Jubilee Line, the secret cinema at Canary Wharf station. It’s called the Canary Wharf Screen, it’s an Art on the Underground project, where if you come down the back of the station, they show movies! Here’s a good one. I used to think that Canning Town was just a bus station, until, that is, I noticed the Thames Ironwork Shipbuilding Memorial here, which is really nice. And with Canning Town done, we were at the end of the line. We’re at Stratford station, the end of the Jubilee Line, I hope we’ve showed you some things and some secrets to look out for next time you’re travelling on the Tube. I’m off to get the train home but not this one.
