he he, a good headline there: LUL install new escalator but forget to plug it in
Unfortunately, they managed the same trick at Tottenham Court Road a few years ago - brand spanking new escalator remained unusable for six(?) months as they had to route the power cable down the tube tunnels to an adjacent station AIRC!
So the ticket counters are closed but why do they have to close the machines as well?????
I assume the staff cannot work there anymore because of the potential asbestos dust (of course it's fine for you commuters to breathe it?!), and though largely automated the machines still need people to empty/fill them with coins and ticket rolls.
At least it means the kiosk is doing a roaring trade!
And the Travelcard touts...
I was actually on the lookout for a tout, because the kiosk queue was a bit long.
But there were none to be found?
Just get on the train without a ticket and buy one at your destination instead - this is perfectly legitimate to do. If you're lucky, you might find that the gates are open at your destination - hey presto, gratis xmas tickets, courtesy of LUL, to ease the pain of all the brixton station shenanigans
Yeah, the Ed and a mate did that last Friday from Brixton to Camden Town
