A post shared by Lingofacts (@lingofacts) on

There are 426 escalators on the London Underground system and the longest, at 60 metres (200 ft), is at Angel. The shortest, at Stratford, gives a vertical rise of 4.1 metres (13 ft). There are 164 lifts, and numbers have increased in recent years following a programme to increase accessibility.

In central London, trains cannot drive faster than 30-40mph because of the short distances between stations. The Victoria line can reach speeds of up to 50mph because the stations are further apart. The Metropolitan line has the fastest train speeds, sometimes reaching over 60mph.
