To actually see the geographical layout as opposed to a stylised map that bears no resemblance to actual geography.

Yeah, I can imagine.

I s'pose I'm kinda used to it, having spent so much time there. :)

The links with the National Rail lines are interesting. So much has changed since I lived in S E London (to be fair, it was in the '80s though).

Women and cats will do as they please, and men and dogs should relax and get used to the idea.

There's a Tube map, on the net, somewhere, with all the stations that have existed and the "ghost ones, which also shows the various changes of name, too. I saw a video, showing the entire map, as it's grown and changed, too.

I'll see if I can find it, if you're interested.
