      Cool. Trafalgar Square. :D

      I remember going through there on a double-decker tour bus. :)

      Yep, my friend and I did so as well even though I was a bit jittery in taking the Tube since we passed through 2 of the stations where the July 7th attacks occurred.

      Did you see any microcells in the tube, Shoresguy?

      Did you notice more Bobbies patrolling the streets while in London?
    • ShoresGuy
      Nope, there were some on the streets but nothing than what I saw on a typical day while living & studying there from 2002-2004.

      Ok. I was just wondering since what they had the subway attacks and street attacks earlier this year.
    • Andy
      Thanks for the information, Shoresguy. I was thinking maybe at least the platforms were allowed to have microcells.
    • ShoresGuy
      On the deepline sections, this is definitely not the case. The deep lines are much deeper than the subsurface routes. The deep lines are the Piccadilly, Bakerloo, Jubilee, Northern, Central and Waterloo and City lines. The subsurface lines (District, Circle, Metropolitan, Hammersmith & City) get some coverage at certain stations when the signal from a local tower at street level makes it down to the platform via the stairwells.
    • Andy
      Shoresguy, that's exaclty how it was back in the day in places like Stuttgart I think where there was no microcells in the U-Bahn, but you could often get a weak signal on the platforms if you were lucky from cells out on the street level.
    • ShoresGuy
      No doubt that has changed in most, if not all, German cities with U-Bahn systems.

      I would love to one day go there and visit.
