The Two Nearest Tube Entrances Are ...
With Bank station on the Northern Line being upgraded, a new entrance is also being constructed that comes out on Cannon Street, and it's REALLY close to the surface entrance to Monument station - but how close?

There's only one way to find out, and that's to get out the measuring wheel ... !

I will go and measure the distance between the two entrances of Hammersmith aren't But those two stations have the same name - this is definetely the shortest difference between two stations with two different names.

More information form TfL about the new entrance on Cannon Street, here: tfl.gov.uk/travel-information/improvements-and-projects/bank-and-monument

Views 106KDay ago
Ever bought a drink or snack from a Tube Station without having to exit the station and leave the gateline? If so, chances are it was on the the District line which i'm pretty sure has eleven places in total where you can acquire sustenance ... that's the most 'on platform' kiosks than any other line! Come District Line With Me as I show you where they all are. CORRECTION: There's also a Newsag...

The Shortest Tube Journey that Ticks off the Alphabet
Views 100KMonth ago
Here's something ... which is fun puzzle that you can try from home (with a tube map) without you even needing to make a journey ... What's the shortest route which ticks off all 26 letters of the alphabet? By travelling through Underground stations only I came up with a route that passes through 13 consecutive stations and takes just 4 trains. But can you beat it !? There are also some alterna...

In the 16th arrondissement of Paris there is a 'one-way' circular route of track that sits on Line 10 of the Paris Metro ... that's right! I've gone international headed overseas to meet up with a familiar face and do a Least Used Station on another metro system ... there's even a bin (poubelle) on the platform. What more could you want? This is my friend Tim Traveller who lives in Paris, and w...

Views 74KMonth ago
The Office of Rail and Road last week released the passenger estimates of station usage for the period time that due to Covid Lockdown, had been “essential travel only" - thus leading to some very strange numbers! So I caught up with their statistical analyst to ask some questions about the new figures. You can download the ORR stats for 2020-20121, here: dataportal.orr.gov.uk/statistics/usage/...

There's a new train operator in town!
