Video: A Ride On Greenford Tube's Incline Lift

A tiny part of us went ahhhhh in 2014 when the last wooden escalator on the Underground — at Greenford — was taken out of commission. But when its replacement opened we went ohhhhh! What prompted this outburst? Said replacement is shiny, majestic — and the tube network's first inclinator.

We're not sure inclinator is a real word, but it finally brings much needed step-free access to a station at the western end of the Central line.

The innovative lift takes just a few seconds to travel up from the ticket hall area to the platforms. Other refurbishments at the station include a unisex accessible toilet, and better signage.
