London’s New Commuter Train

Thanks to industrial designers Barber & Osgerby, London may very
well be getting a new commuter rail train by 2017. The
winning design, appointed by Transport for London, will eventually
occupy space on the new Crossrail line, a 62-mile network of
underground tunnels to be added underneath the city. The line will
connect several existing stations within the London Underground and
Overground networks.
