So much space in the carriage. Brilliant. Just one thing. Landscape, camera man. Landscape. Rotate that phone.

A life that is free of wombling is a sad one.

Ah, I see the problem - different forums use different formats for youtube tags, and I used the one where you put the whole link in, which caused SSC to put url tags around it and breaking it - here it is.


The Wombles was very popular stop-motion animation from the 70s and 90s (and I think there's a remake due to come out soon), where a family of creatures called 'wombles' lived on Wimbledon Common and found rubbish, reusing it to make stuff. Also the characters, as people in costumes, were a band with a number of hits who played Glastonbury (to a large crowd) a mere 5 years ago. As such, pretty much everyone over 20 who has lived in the UK for more than a couple of months would have got the reference.

The TV series' theme tune (the video above) starts 'Overground, underground, wombling free: the wombles of Wimbledon Common are we', which is the joke.

And finally we have response to:

‘unacceptable disruption for passengers in recent months’, including ongoing industrial action by the RMT union as well as ‘unofficial disruption and guards going off sick.’ on Southern network.

It is striking how quick one of the best franchises went so terribly wrong despite fact that it was and is run by Govia

Overall I'm quite impressed. I was there around 6:30 - 7:30 pm and station didn't feel too crowded.
There were at some point crowds on the platforms but it had probably all to do with today's delays and a few cancellations rather than with the design.

The part of station used by Southern felt deserted.

Now we have to wait until 2018 to see further significant changes.

There's a 360 video of the journey from Plumstead to Custom House somewhere too.
