This Is The Most Refreshingly Honest Tube Sign In London

Telling it like it is, and in some style.

Posted on

Ever wish that the people who run the London underground would just tell it like it is? Get a load of this.

It reads:

The service from [this] station is EXECRABLE, as in sub-standard. Passengers are strongly advised to turn around and use local buses.
We apologise for the inconvenience.
Caveat emptor! [Buyer beware]

This was the cause of the problem earlier.

No service High Street Ken to Edgware Rd. Faulty train at Edgware Road. Severe delays on rest. Earlier signal failure at Tower Hill.

But if you're about to hop on a train at High Street Ken now, all lines are currently running what Transport for London calls a "good service".
