Photo Credit : Lucy Youngsiemens_trainDestination… The Future… 

German firm Siemens have designed a concept prototype of how they think a London tube train should look and if i’m honest i wouldn’t half mind getting on one of these every morning….

Siemens say that the Inspiro would run on 30% less electricity than current modern tube trains and that they would overall be around 20% lighter. If you want to see the prototype it will be showcased to mark the 150th anniversary of the London Underground at the Crystal exhibition centre in the Royal Victoria Docks next week, The ‘Going Underground: Our journey to the future’ exhibition is free to enter and opens on October 8th.
