Are Transport for London Going To Install Bus Maps On Underground Platforms?

On both of the platforms at Angel station, Transport for London have now placed, their excellent bus spider maps, with a local street map.

More of this please.

Beggars On The London Overground

Beggars on the London Overground are becoming a nuisance.

Today, as I returned home, I saw this notice at Dalston Junction station.

So I made a small donation to the Whitechapel Mission.

Let’s hope it helps.

A Driver’s View Of Waterloo Re-Opened International Platforms.

I assume it’s a driver, as the Tweeter of this message has Driver in the name.

The feeling of space on the re-opened International side at London Waterloo is a small joy. Now it needs shops and a little vibrancy; still feels a touch clinical. But it’s getting there.

Criticism of the new platforms seems a bit thin, although some have said, it took Network Rail, a long time to get a plan together.

I wonder what the RMT think of the new platforms.

After all, the extra capacity will allow more trains to run, which will surely mean more staff.
