 London Underground - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Stock on sub-surface lines is identified by a letter (such as A Stock, used on the Metropolitan Line), while tube stock is identified by the year in which it was designed (for example, 1996 Stock, used on the Jubilee Line).
Lines of both types usually emerge onto the surface outside the central area, except the Victoria Line, which is in tunnel except for its depot, and the very short Waterloo and City Line, which has no non-central part and no surface section.
The lack of lines in south London is sometimes attributed to the geology of that area, the region being almost one large aquifer; additionally, it is impossible for cut and cover lines to go under the River Thames.

 Victoria Line - tScholars.com
In some cases this was achieved by placing the Victoria Line platforms on either side of the existing station, while in others the Victoria Line uses one of the old platforms while the older line was diverted into a new platform.
Other cross-platform interchanges are at Stockwell (with the Northern Line), Oxford Circus (with the Bakerloo Line), Highbury and Islington (with the WAGN Northern City Line) and Finsbury Park (with the Piccadilly Line).
The line is equipped with an automatic train operation system (ATO); the train operator (driver) needs only to close the train doors and press a pair of "start" buttons, and if the way ahead is clear the ATO will drive the train at a safe speed to the next station and stop there.
