The Anonymous Widower

The Central Express Line

Getting to and from QPR yesterday was simple.  I took a 21/141 bus to Bank and then got the Central Line to White City.

The journey back was particularly quick and the average station time was under two minutes.

So why is it quicker than other lines?

The trains were the first on the Underground to have wide outside plug doors and this gives more space inside and makes entry and exit easier.  But also these trains are fully-automatic, with an advanced breaking system, that cuts time on stopping from full speed.

In other words, by good attention to detail, you can speed things up a little bit in several ways.
