Are there any plans for an Angel-style rebuilding of the two Clapham stations?

This is why the trains have to be slow on the approach to the two aforementioned stations.

The curvature of Central Line platforms at Bank Station is quite crazy.

I remember getting on a train at Bank. It always looks like a corner of a carriage is about to clip your knees!

That arrival time, it's not coincidental, is it? I'm sure the A stock debuted around that date...

Are the two platforms on the right the old National Rail platforms of the now closed Farringdon-Moorgate line?

I always love the old tube stations, so much more exciting and nicer than the new clinical looking ones that open on new networks!
