Reminds me of the old Maxis game A-Train that I used to play as a kid, quite soothing just watching the trains go about their business

Unlikely, seeing as it is based on the TfL data...

Also check out the following map showing the location of platforms at the stations; help identify the best places to change trains:

Detailled London transport map (track, depot, ...) (http://carto.metro.free.fr/cartes/metro-tram-london/)

By the way, has anyone riden the "Kennington Loop"?
This is where you stay on a terminating southbound Charing-Cross-branch Northern line train at Kennington. It carries on south and goes around a tight loop leading you back into the station to form a new northbound service on the same branch. A geeky delight - I did it yesterday.

Don't they check the train first?

I want to do the DLR train at bank where you go in and out of station - but they always check the train first.

I think they're supposed to check, but they get lazy. Just keep a low profile.
I am led to believe the loop is haunted...
