Pac-Man Tube Map - TubeHack

Pac-Man Tube Map

Great tube map variation here featuring the classic 80s icon Pac-Mac. I’m hoping someone with the coding knowledge will go on to create a working game of this Pac-Man map.

Art Deco London Underground Poster

Classic London Underground Poster: It Is Warmer Below (1927)

There were countless London Underground posters produced during the art deco period and this is one that caught my eye the other day. It was created by Frederick Charles Herrick in 1927 and shows, somewhat inaccurately, how the London Underground tube system offered a warmer environment for travellers as opposed to overground services. He also […]

Animals On The Underground - Snail - TubeHack

Animals on the Underground

It’s been around for a while now but Animals on the Underground is a strange phenomena that is definitely worth a feature on TubeHack. A whole range of animals from emus to elephants have been outlined using the topological map of the London Underground tube system by people with perhaps a bit too much time […]

Stickers On The Central Line - London Riots - TubeHack

Stickers On The Central Line

Stickers On The Central Line is a tumblog that’s been going for a few months now run by an unidentified commuter that has been sneakily applying self-made stickers over the Central Line maps found within tube trains. I can only assume that the person behind these stickers is either from Buckhurst Hill or has a bit […]
