I don't either, unless it's an obscure reference to them only briefly meeting at Stratford and Bond Street

Maybe. The "let's just say I didn't mind her gap" line makes no sense then though. Not that it does anyway

I suspect that was a sex reference

Well yes, but two Tube Lines didn't exactly do it did they?

Well if you want to be strictly literal, tube lines aren't people either!

Without overanalysing, I took it as the, er, "interchange" (to keep the railway analogy) involved in a "Brief Encounter" (to keep the railway analogy) between a stereotypical "Essex Girl" from the eastern end of the Central line and a cynical sly "Silver Fox" ageing lothario on the Jubilee line (who is probably a banker who works in Canary Wharf and lives somewhere between Baker Street and West Hampstead). Hmm, actually that probably is overanalysing. Anyway, I enjoyed the video generally, although I thought the DLR automation was somewhat overplayed.
