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.
