Yup, it is at the centre of the Thameslink and Crossrail projects.

I think TfL should start considering SERIOUSLY the introduction of platform sliding doors on some of its underground lines.

Platform doors would ruin the clean look that my photo series has shown.

My god, Turnmills, those were the days. Bagleys, The Cross, Club UK (sorry!), Coliseum, Camden Palace, Velvet Underground, Plastic People, Cafe de Paris, The Fridge, Scala, 333, SE1, The Gardening Club, and Adrenaline Village. 1990s never died for me.

I'm now a 34 year old bookseller in the Natural History Museum. And I like watching 'Great Train Journeys of the World', and Coast. You?

which are very secondary to safety.

The curvy nature of a lot of platforms and their wrong height in relation to trains pretty much put paid to any desire to fit platform screen doors. Even on the sub-surface lines where S stocks are introduced whose floor is at the same height as the platforms, S7 and S8 trains stop at different positions meaning their doors won't be at the same place - this is due to selective door opening requirements - where a platform can only accommodate 7 cars, an 8-car train would have doors of half a carriage either end shut out, rather than that of a whole carriage.

In any case, London's tube users are of the more intelligent type, as far as transport users are concerned.

I bet if we look back though this thread you've made that comment at least 5 times already.

I lived on St. John Street in 2008/2009 and would use Farringdon every day on my way to university. Was back there in April and the station has changed so much, and will change even more with the opening of Crossrail.

Turnmills closed down in 2008. I remember going there once a couple weeks before it closed. Most of my memories of the place were of walking past it hungover in the morning and wondering how people could still be clubbing past noon!

I can't prove it: the priority seems to be on replacing old equipment and gradually introducing step-free access as required by law. The 1972, A, C and D stocks must be replaced before 2020, due to RVAR.
