Transport for London has just made one of the most insane decisions known to mankind. Even by their standards, this takes some beating.
Checking the weekend engineering works email I get every Wednesday, I spy something which makes me worry. I check the email again â€“ then check another website for confirmation.
Yes â€“ this weekend, they are closing the tube lines which run to Acton Town station from the center of London.
So What? â€“ you may quite reasonably think, they close stations and lines every weekend.
Well, dear reader â€“ this weekend is the annual open days at the London Transport Museumâ€™s main storage depot â€“ which happens to be just over the road from, you guessed it â€“ Acton Town station.
The very weekend that the station should be packed to the rafters full of train geeks â€“ they choose to shut down most of the line.
Not a clever idea.
