When visiting a new city a lot of the excitement is exploring their public transport. These photographs are from diverse locations; a monorail in Wuppertal, a beautiful Swedish Underground station in Stockholm and a massive high speed train station in Belgium by one of my favourite architects, Santiago Calatrava.
The Elizabeth Line
It is rare that whole new underground lines open so the Elizabeth Line was a particularly appealing. Starting decades ago and originally called Crossrail, the line is now named the Elizabeth Line to honour Her Majesty The Queen. The Queen opened the line to coincide with her Platinum Jubilee. Only the central section is completed with Bond Street yet to open, none the less it is an amazing feet of engineering.
