Walkthrough by Harry Laudie
You slide down a long tunnel and land in a subway station. Go west and pick up three flares. At the far west are two closed doors. Go south and jump the turnstiles. Go down the stairs to the track platform. The track is electrified and is deadly. Go to the north-east corner and jump over the track to grab a crevice. Shimmy left to a ledge where you can pull up. Save at the top of a slope for a very hard slide. Guess the time between the spikes that pop up at the bottom. Stay on the left side of the slope and start to slide between the pop times. Hopefully, you will hit the bottom as the spikes have just retracted. Step forward a little and jump forward to grab the crosshatched black wall. Shimmy to the left and around the corner. Position Lara between the top and bottom tiles. Back flip, roll, and grab the ledge behind you. Pull up into the opening and the camera view changes.
You enter a room with a deadly floor. Lara keeps looking at the fans. Walk west to the edge of the platform. Turn slightly to the left and when the flame emitter stops, side jump to the right. You should land on the platform but safely in front of the fan. Crouch to pick up a small medipack. Face the fan, roll and hop back into the water. You get secret #1. Only that one tile is safe so do not swim. Pick up the Secret Fuse #1 and a large medipack. Pull back up onto the platform and run forward away from the fan.
The next jump is hard. Give yourself full health and run and jump to the west through the fans. You land on a safe platform behind the second fan. Any other jump to the other platforms just seems nearly impossible.
Be careful of the fire emitters and jump north twice to safe platforms and then east to another safe platform. Walk to the edge of the opening. Run and jump to a safe area over the track. You get an extremely long flyby ending with the laser sight. Go north to the end and run and jump into a hole at the west wall. Drop into the bottom and shoot a huge rat. Go east and through a triangular crawl space. Drop into a brick-lined tunnel. Go north and take the first branch. Stand jump to an opening overlooking the pit. Stand jump to grab a horizontal pole. Spin and release with a left curve. You should land on a safe column. Run and jump to the east to grab a column. Pull up and pick up the laser sight.
Run and jump to the north-east to grab a column and pull up. Go to the north-east corner of the block. Stand jump to the north-east slope and jump into the east tunnel. Follow the tunnel and slide down into a brick-lined tunnel. Go south and through the crawl space again. Go to the room where you jump into this hole. Back flip off the south ledge and jump forward to grab a ledge. Run and jump out the fence to the south-east. You may need a left curve to clear the deadly tracks.

When the fire emitter is off, pull up and run and jump to a north-east alcove. Turn around and run and jump to grab the wire-mesh ledge above the fire emitter. You do not catch fire. Shimmy to the right and wait until the fire emitter is off before you pull up onto the mesh floor. Go north to a movable block with a coil texture. When the fire emitter starts, start to pull back the block. When you reach the fire emitter, it should have stopped. Immediately release the block and side jump to the left. Move the block around the mesh floor and push it into the alcove in the south-east corner. Stop on the tile just before the alcove and the fire emitter stops. Then push the block into the alcove and a platform rises above you at the north wall.
Jump into the east alcove. Then jump to a south wall alcove. Run and jump north to pull up onto the platform. Then stand jump in a west wall platform.
