Extracting Varicose Veins

Seen on Funkypancake

According to
Funkypancake various London Underground lines were brought to London from different towns and villages.

"This is why each of the lines has its own individual characteristics, and why so few other towns in the UK have their own underground transport. One engineer on the project said "it's like extracting varicose veins and putting them back in someone else's legs, but much more rewarding""

It's a nice myth/urban legend/fairy story. Or it may even be true?
