Although I haven't traveled on the tube for nearly two years I do drive on one tube line bit (sometimes)...(can you guess where?)....and also did drive on a BR line which is now an Underground line.

No.Also I have discovered recently (as I am so out of touch with the tube) that a rail company has inherited a bit of old tube line.Only found out because my cycle commute goes past one of the stations beginning with S.

Why don't you use the tube bro?

Is it South West trains you drive for? I never hear a bad thing about them so I think they're good guys

If it's South West, the District just after Wimbledon Park - Wimbledon?

The only bits of (former) national rail I can think of that actually share tracks are Queens Park - Harrow & Wealdstone + Gunnersbury - Richmond.

We have a winner....^^^^ but I did actually drive on another BR line in the early 90's which is now a tube line.A clue is it only has two stations.

East Putney to Wimbledon Park although I did drive into Wimbledon many years ago.In the 90's.Can't remember why though.

I don't really particularly like the tube...Too overcrowded for me.I like it as a driver but dislike it as a passenger.Also rarely use buses.Must be 3+ years since I used one.

That's easy, Waterloo & City. I can imagine that being the most boring job.
