More Victoria Line Vexations?

Tube trainExpect a sigh of frustration to issue from Walthamstow, Brixton and all points inbetween when commuters hear the rumour that the Victoria Line's 10pm weekday curfew - set to end this November - may continue into 2009. BBC London have turned out a fascinating report on the line's £900m refurb - they've been poking around with the engineers installing signals and track ahead of the new rolling stock set to be gradually introduced next year, which will bump train frequency from 28 to 33 per hour. But until then, passengers may still have to sweat out that endless stretch between Finsbury Park and Seven Sisters before 10pm or else face a long walk home.
