IIRC, they said that they're going to try to put back as much of them as they can. So hopefully it won't be too bad.

No.

Tottenham Court Road isn't listed.

There has been a tendency when re-doing stations with Edwardian tiled platforms to reveal and restore the tiling. Put back as much as possible seems to mean that they will try and save the original tiles, but if any of them do break, they'll replace them.

At Covent Garden when they refurbished the station they simply installed new replica tiles over the original Green tiling. There's photos of it happening

There are a few examples of Leslie Green tiling left at Tottenham Court Road which you can still see if you are very quick.

If you take the emergency stairs down from the ticket hall you end up in the lower lift lobby for the northern line which has a rather fetching teal and magenta colour scheme.

This area will not be accessible when the new ticket hall comes into use in a few days.

The Central Line areas only ever had plain white tiling because the line was not built by Yerkes.

I hope TCR loses all those tiles. They may be distracting commuters.

Brand new Tottenham Court Road station ticket hall was opened yesterday:

Daniel Buren artwork at the entrance:













I have a feeling beyond this door will eventually link to Crossrail 2.



This will eventually go beyond to Crossrail 1.

And in the Crossrail thread they were using words like 'bland' and 'boring' to describe it? Seeing pictures, while it is simple, it has textures and colours and stuff to accent it uniquely.

I like it.

Very much fits in with other newer concourses with the LU blue and white.

TfL looks at DLR extension across Gallions Bridge
January 13, 2015 10:18 AM



Transport for London has revealed it's looking into running the Docklands Light Railway over the proposed Gallions Reach Bridge.

The idea had previously been proposed by Greenwich Council, which is calling for more public transport links in east London.

At the Transport Select Committee at Westminister on Monday, TfL's Michele Dix said for the first time it was considering the idea.

"Gallions is potentially having the DLR running across the bridge," she said. "We are looking at many areas."

The bridge is proposed to replace the Woolwich Ferry and could be in place by the mid-2020s. TfL is currently working on the idea after a consultation last year

Am I the only one who will miss the psychedelic toilet motif of Tottenham Court Road?

Yes, the S Stock introduction is nearing completion so the D Stocks are being sent packing despite a very recent refurbishment. The recent refurbishment is partly why a company called VivaRail reckons that they could re-use most of them to oust the Pacers from the National Rail network. Well, they reckon that they can convert 156 driving cars and 70 trailers to push the Pacers further into much needed retirement.

Sources for my commentary:

It would be very interesting to see D Stock on northern suburban routes instead of pacers. A massive improvement that would be.

Better still, use them on southern suburban routes and we'll have new stock in the north for a change.

They'd be ideal for some of Glasgow's busier diesel lines, especially in Metro configuration with 4 doors and LU style seating. If anything, just a stop gap til electrification.

That being said, once EGIP is complete and the fleet of Turbostars which run the line are free to be cascaded on to other routes, the Pacers will probably be replaced with Scotrail's Sprinter fleet.
