The Anonymous Widower

Riding The Drain For The First Time

Surprisingly, I’d never ridden on the Waterloo and City Line (a.k.a. The Drain) until today.

Normally, it’s closed on a Sunday, but to help out the Northern line, TfL were running it today.

I must be the first Londoner, who first rode the Drain in his sixties on a Sunday.

When I used it today, I just walked up the travelator to the surface, up a few steps and along Princes Street and I was at the stop for the 141 bus to take me home.

I do hope that the Drain is going to be run to a similar schedule to the rest of the Underground, as getting to and from Waterloo isn’t the easiest of journeys from Dalston.

I’ll probably use the line again in the future!
