If you’re wondering how far tube trains travel at peak time…

…then wonder no longer! Behold this marvellous creation from the boffins at Spatial Analysis, who took performance data released by TfL and fashioned it into an easily digestible map.

As it turns out, between them all the trains running on the Central line travel some 8,100 miles at peak time every day – roughly the distance from here to Australia – and the Metropolitan and the Jubilee lines both (hypothetically) get you all the way to China. But not all lines are that impressive – the Waterloo and City Line only just makes its way past Dublin. Quit slacking guys…

Want your mind blown by a live 3D tube map? Of course you do.
