    Comment of the week:

    The prospect of the New Cross to Dalton section of London Overground opening is causing some to throw caution to the wind:

    I'm more than a little bit excited by this. I feel this may somewhat damage my carefully cultivated street cred image, but nevertheless it's nice to see some of the tube actually opening again, rather than closing down.

    We agree, Shellfire. Your street cred has only been boosted round here. Thanks.
