the victoria line isnt running again this weekend. HANDY.
YOU FUCKING COMPLETE CUNTS
bigger tubes with more internal space, less packed and with much better ventilation?
I NEVER use the Victoria Line anyway!
*checks Jubilee Line status for weekend*
Northern line users realize there is at least one group of people even more hapless and frustrated than we are
Shadenfraude - that is why the Victoria line exists.
Let's spare a thought for users of the District Line, which 3 days out of 7, runs like engineering work is taking place in the area immediately in front of the train.
Then there are those people who live/work on the East London line who, after god knows how many years worth of nothing, can look forward to getting their tube back - except they won't because they're converting it to the notoriously reliable and frequently running Overground service. SHAME!
at the mo its ok, but it does go through periods of just, well, not working at all. none of the stations past earls court have the "dot matrix" system for some reason, which is great when your standing at hammersmith for 15 mins with absolutely no idea how much longer you're gonna be there.
It's appalling. It would take 25 minutes to get from Fulham to Earl's Court.
Earl's Court is a blak hole sucking everything in and nothing comes back out again
it has been going on for at least 3 years, if not longer. i'm not usually one to moan about upgrade work but this is really starting to take the piss. its pretty much every 3rd weekend that it doesnt run.
there arent any longer trains yet. like i say, i'm all for upgrade work, but this is starting to get silly.
always loads of "work" going on at brixton on saturdays too. when i say "work" i mean lots of guys in orange jackets sitting on chairs outside the station looking at girls.
Otherwise you end up with people trapped in the trains when they arrive at the station.
i mean, i havent seen any longer platforms. have you? maybe they're hiding them behind all that black and yellow tape?
in case people fell down behind the train accidentally?
or baker street. or anywhere along that line.
i'm suggesting they havent extended any platforms at all.
the yellow tape is what keeps people off the vic line at the weekend
Has anybody been to North Ealing, Canon's Park, Queensbury or Willesden Green recently?
Well you should, that's what a refurbished station looks like. And very nice they are too.
This is charmingly naive. You're like those people who believe they're actually going to refurbish Mile End one day...
They just started going mental at Aldgate East and they're closing Mile End the first three weekends in June while they 'modernise' the ticket hall.
That's something that definitely needed doing. I'll see you back here in 20 years when they finally decide to get started on the rest of the station.
They've taken all the old posters and tiles down from the stairways.
is craig foley still about? Does he post under another wacky username?
Spiders_WATCHOUTman was my favourite. im sure he's still about though
I won't be using it this weekend
I just look at this http://www.anagramtubemap.pwp.blueyonder.co.uk/ and I know everything is gonna be alright.
Absorbancy and Neural Android! Everything really is going to be all right.
NB: Burn if Sparky - not far off.
