Found this oddity whilst waiting at Hammersmith the other day...




Also, can anyone tell me why several stations on the central line eastbound/westbound platform line diagrams (e.g. at Newbury Park) still show the failed attempts to change the name of Shepherd's Bush to Shepherd's Bush Green, and why the diagrams were changed before any name alteration was approved in the first place?

The picture is too small. I can't see what it is supposed to be showing.

Educated guess: the Piccadilly line does not pass High Street Kensington (but South Kensington)

Tourists need to be educated so they don't get in the way of stressed Londoners trying to save 14 and 17 seconds of their lives

New Tube for London invitations to tender issued
18 Jan 2016









UK: Transport for London invited Alstom, Bombardier, CAF, Hitachi and Siemens to tender for a contract to supply 250 new trainsets for the London Underground on January 18.

The procurement forms part of the New Tube for London programme to modernise rolling stock, infrastructure and signalling on the small-profile Piccadilly, Waterloo & City, Bakerloo and Central lines.

Expressions of interest were invited in February 2014, when invitations to tender had been expected to be issued in early 2015. The five pre-qualified bidders have been asked to submit their proposals this summer, with the contract expected to be awarded in autumn 2017 and the trains to enter service from ‘the early 2020s’. The cost of the order is expected to be between £1bn and £2·5bn

Some concerning news for heritage operations in the latest Finance & Policy Committee papers regarding the resignalling of the H&C/Circle/Metropolitan/District.

Quote:
4.26 LU is reviewing the possibility of de-scoping the ATC conversion of its heritage vehicles from the ATC contract.

Very good to see the Northern Line extension going on. Nine Elms will be is a hot spot these days and that would only be complete with good transportation links.

Caledonian Road station will be staying open: http://www.standard.co.uk/news/trans...-a3159636.html

If that statistic of a lift failure once a week is to be believed, then surely repairing one at a time is going to be a nightmare...

Either way, let's see how quickly those lifts take replacing. An 8-month full station closure should translate into at least a 12-month open station repair job.

Since I have these old pics of the DLR I thought I'd post them. They were from the very first day it opened to the public in August 1987.

Waiting at Crossharbour for a train to Island Gardens:





And the original elevated platforms at Island Gardens (when that was the end of the line):



There was a good turnout from the locals wanting to ride the new train. It made a big difference to life on the Island.

Look at how tiny the trains and the stations are! Can you imagine them running such short trains today? On any line?

Did they redevelop the south of that peninsula/Isle of Dogs before Canary Wharf was built out ?

^ The DLR opened before the first set of towers went up at Canary Wharf, but large parts of the southern half of the Isle of Dogs still look very similar today. There are quite a few new flats along the waterfront at the southern end, but inland not so much has changed.
