Transport for London excel in stupidity this weekend

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 – then check another website for confirmation.

Yes – this weekend, they are closing the tube lines which run to Acton Town station from the center of London.

So What? – you may quite reasonably think, they close stations and lines every weekend.

Well, dear reader – this weekend is the annual open days at the London Transport Museum’s main storage depot – which happens to be just over the road from, you guessed it – Acton Town station.

The very weekend that the station should be packed to the rafters full of train geeks – they choose to shut down most of the line.

Not a clever idea.

Whats's on in London: today or tomorrow or this weekend
