What better for the tube geek than to drift off to sleep with the comforting glow of a London Underground roundel keeping the monsters away.

From today, the London Transport Museum shop will be selling these TfL licenced London Underground Lightboxes, which also come with 10 interchangeable station signs, including the classic ‘Mind The Gap’ slogan.

They are sold as a battery powered free-standing or wall-mountable lamp and cost £40 each.

Update: Been informed that they are also powered by a USB cable which is included so it can be run from a computer, or suitable mains power adapter. They’re also sold out, but more stocks are on the way in a few days.

Additional interchangeable signs included with the lamp are Covent Garden, Piccadilly Circus, Waterloo, Oxford Circus & Kings Cross St. Pancras.

The lamp’s dimensions: Height 28cm, depth 5cm, width 36cm

This website has been running now for over a decade, and while advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, it doesn't cover the costs. That is why I have set up a facility with DonorBox where you can contribute to the costs of the website and time invested in writing and research for the news articles.

It's very similar to the way The Guardian and many smaller websites are now seeking to generate an income in the face of rising costs and declining advertising.

Whether it's a one-off donation or a regular giver, every additional support goes a long way to covering the running costs of this website, and keeping you regularly topped up doses of Londony news and facts.

If you like what you read on here, then please support the website here.

Thank you

    I cannot think of much more horrid and dismal. The train company which has millions of corporate workers in bondage every week and get off on it.

    “Corporate workers in bondage.” What does that even mean?!

    Thanks Ian.
    I’m sure these lights make a handsome profit for the museum but I’ll likely buy one.

    Hopefully on day they’ll sell custom (and solar-powered) versions with one’s own choice of tube station.
