Submission + - Siemens' tube of the future aims to ease sardine-like commutes->

llebeel writes: London Underground's "next generation" tube train could to do away with sardine like commutes. The body is working with potential suppliers for these trains on a regular basis to work out what they will look like and how they will solve some of the overcrowding problems in the Tube network due to its ever growing number of passengers.

One contender in the bidding to provide that next gen train is German electronics firm Siemens, who has built a "tube train of the future" mock-up, the Inspiro metro train, which rests at the Crystal in the Royal Victoria Dock in East London. If London Underground choose the Inspiro, passenger numbers will be increased by around 10 percent.
