  1. District line

    The District line is a London Underground service that crosses Greater London from east to west. From Upminster, the eastern terminus, the line runs through Central London to Earl's Court before dividing into three western branches that go to Ealing Broadway, Wimbledon and Richmond. A branch also runs northward from Earl's Court to Edgware Road via Paddington. Coloured green on the tube map, the line serves 60 stations in 40 miles, and crosses the Thames by bridges on the Wimbledon and Richmond branches. The track and stations between Barking and Aldgate East are shared by the Hammersmith & City line, and between Tower Hill and Gloucester Road and on the Edgware Road branch by the Circle line. Of the 60 stations served, 25 are below ground. Unlike London's deep-level tube railways, the railway tunnels are just below the surface and the trains are of a similar size to those on British main lines. In 2011/12 over 208 million passenger journeys were made. The original Metropolitan District Railway opened in December 1868 from South Kensington to Westminster as part of a plan for an underground 'inner circle' connecting London's main-line termini. Services were operated at first using wooden carriages hauled by steam locomotives. Electrification was financed by the American Charles Yerkes, and electric services began in 1905. In 1933 the railway was absorbed by the London Passenger Transport Board. In the first half of the 1930s the Piccadilly line took over the Uxbridge and Hounslow branches, although a peak-hour District line service ran on the Hounslow branch until 1964. Kensington has been served by the District line since 1946, and a short branch to South Acton closed in 1959. The trains carried guards until one person operation was introduced in 1985.
