London to get air-conditioned Underground train

LONDON'S Mayor Boris Johnson has tested the first of London’s new air-conditioned Underground rolling stock which will be introduced from next summer on the Metropolitan line.  New trains will also be rolled out on the Circle, District and Hammersmith & City lines.  The London Tube is the oldest metro system in the world and the vast majority of the network was built long before air conditioning systems were developed for train use.  However, much of the Tube is made up of deep and narrow tunnels built with insufficient space for air conditioning and finding cooling solutions is one of the many challenges being addressed by the Underground's Cooling the Tube project team. www.tfl.gov.uk/tube
