…and then all the buses in the world come along. Amusing/frustrating images from James Bird, who snapped this omnibus centipede on Essex Road this morning. Can anywhere else in town beat Essex Road for long chains of buses?

In-depth look at the railway beneath our streets.
Pentonville Road’s not much better
My boyfriend counted 79 buses after we got off our bus on essex road near the New North Road junction!
Daniel, that’s the same queue! When I walked past it this morning it had started just outside the Essex Road Station and went all the way through to Pentonville Road. 1 mile of buses.
Does anyone know why Islington Council dig up Angel on a seemingly anual basis, or why when all they seem to do is move paving slabs around it takes months every time?
It’s sometimes feels like a bit of a first world problem, but then we are paying first world transport costs…

Ha. The Olympics are going to be so much fun.
At Elephant & Castle, I once saw a chain of about 30 buses.
Route 28 is the same, especially around Wandsworth Town… what seems like a dozen buses going in the other direction and NONE going my way… so freaking annoying!!!
This queue if buses had no one on it either and the queue must have been over a mile long!
Wood Green Shopping City gets to be similar, although nowhere near that many. Often 10-12 are visible in the block or two I can see.
This just shows why we need the Chelsea-Hackney line. I think they use more buses to run the 38 than any other oute in London.
A bus broke down outside angel station. Buses were that closely piled up that no one could reverse out to break the chain.
I have face many Difficult to Pick up a Bus. http://forums.usingwindowshomeserver.com/user/4201-alaxandera/
that picture is the epitome of my trip to school and college, and funnily enough, I was always stuck around Essex Road Station. Having to walk to school, there would always be at least one 341 to seven 38′s. Useless!
The 38s did it!
