Have you ever wondered what it would be like to perform acrobatics on the front of a train going through Crossrail tunnels?
Well ponder no longer – a video allowing you to simulate just that has been released.
The interactive 360° footage was shot from the front of one of Crossrail’s construction locomotives as it journeyed from Stepney Green cavern to Farringdon.
You can move around the shot at stomach-churning angles to look back at the driver, glimpse forward at the tunnel or stare vacantly at the ceiling.
Crossrail tunnelling completed in May – eight 1,000t machines spent three years creating 42km of 6.2m-diameter passageway under London.
The tunnels weave their way between existing underground lines, sewers, utility tunnels and building foundations from station to station at depths of up to 42m.
Crossrail construction, which started in 2009, is now two-thirds complete. Services through central London will commence in 2018.
Construction locomotives are used to carry people and materials through the tunnels.
