Episode 19 - The Haunted London Underground
He quickly made his way up the stairs to the locked station gates....but there was nobody else there. He immediately radioed his colleague back in the CCTV room to report that he couldn't find the lady and that he must have, somehow, missed her. His colleague checked over one hundred cameras, but there was sight of her. This is Episode 19 of The Haunted UK Podcast, and in this episode, we're going to journey down into the depths of the London Underground. In 1863, a world first happened. A steam locomotive pulling gas lit wooden carriages travelled between Paddington and Farringdon. On its opening day, this train service transported an estimated 38,000 people between these two destinations, and proved so popular that other trains were taken from lines elsewhere to help cope with the demand. But what made this locomotive and it's carriages so special.....well this was the beginning of the now, world famous London Underground. Today, the London Underground transports around a billion passengers every year, and although the network now spans 11 lines, 272 stations and almost 250 miles of tunnels, it's an extremely safe mode of transport. Statistics suggest that for every 300 million journeys that are made on the tube network, only 1 fatal accident occurs. But 250 miles of tunnels would also suggest that workmen must have perished in the early years of construction.
