Mile End station used to have a District line map on it which displayed a phantom station, Putney Green. Probably a signmaker's error: it sat between Putney Bridge and Parson's Green. I think it's gone now, sadly.

Thanks Geoff Marshall, always informative and a nicely presented.


The Underground goes over the Overground in three seperate locations on the district line?


Upminster Bridge, not quite a swastika but it was defaced by a few squaddies.

If at 6am weekdays you go upto the badly mean looking Jamaican guy standing outside the shop at the northeast corner of Manor House interchange and squeeze his balls and shout "FREE TICKET" he WILL buy you a free one-way ticket to Dagenham for you!

Love it! When I took Geoff's tour, he showed us the fake house and the wall you can peer over. Really neat to see this stuff first hand.
