London Transport

I know just how Martin feels – thats why I try to avoid the tube generally, and especially during the summer, and stick to the mainline trains. Now that all the trains in my region have been replaced with air-conditioned carriages with tinted glass I can feel even more smug.

This would be a good time to repeat a quote I read in today’s paper:

I am fully convinced of the futility of all that I do… The amount of labour that we put into getting simple things simply carried out is enormous…

That was from the famous Frank Pick, chief executive of the London Passenger Transport Board in 1936. I worked for London Underground for six years and I can report that nothing has changed.
