“The District line is a London Underground service that crosses Greater London from east to west. From Upminster, the eastern terminus, the line runs through Central London to Earl's Court before dividing into three western branches that go to Ealing Broadway, Wimbledon and Richmond. A branch also runs northward from Earl's Court to EdgwareRoad via Paddington. Coloured green on the tube map, the line serves 60 stations in 40 miles (64 km), and crosses the Thames by bridges on the Wimbledon and Richmond branches. The track and stations between Barking and Aldgate East are shared by the Hammersmith & City line, and between Tower Hill and Gloucester Road and on the Edgware Road branch by the Circle line. Of the 60 stations served, 25 are below ground. Unlike London's deep-level tube railways, the railway tunnels are just below the surface and the trains are of a similar size to those on British main lines.”
