Paddington Station, as painted by the excellent Doreen Fletcher, slightly further west in London than usual.


Great photos from IanVisits showing the new Northern Line extension under construction. A new tunnel has been built around the old, which is gradually being removed.

Here’s another wonderful variant on the London Underground map – with all the stations translated into German “using actual meanings, associations and sound-alike words”. Horst Prillinger was responsible (it dates from 2004) and you can see it close-up here. Thanks to Judith Flanders for finding it. I’ll be getting on the tube at Grashugel this evening.
