"Amended" Timetable

So “amended” means having a two hour gap in between these two trains…

And this morning, coming into London, for the first time, I found a Piccadilly Line train starting from Oakwood, which is very rare.

Post-Christmas Day holidays

Well, it’s the day after Boxing Day. The day where the majority of people who haven’t taken the interim days off on holiday, go back to work.

There was definitely a run-down feeling on the train ride into work and the trains were running a reduced (probably a Sunday service), so I ended up running for the earlier train since my normal one wasn’t there today.

TFL’s French WiFi

So, Transport for London appears to be routing WiFi traffic out to *France* on some underground stations.
 
I was passing through Marble Arch the other day and Swarm was picking me up as about 8K from L’Arc de Triomphe in France
 
and Bond Street showed me as in the neighbourhood of Sevres (11K from L’Arc de Triomphe)
 
Since I was underground, the only method of geolocation was the WiFi endpoint, meaning the traffic was going through to France. But *why* ?

abandonedstations

A really interesting map of all of London’s abandoned and partly-abandoned stations. Some of which I knew about (Mill Hill East for example), others, like Highbury + Islington, which I use daily to get to work, I didn’t know had a different surface building at one point.
