Distances from London
The AA used to produce a set of paper maps which were mostly black and white but had red lines indicating the best driving route from the city named on the front to every major town in Britain.

Meridian Water station, which has had a sparse peak-only service since it replaced Angel Road station earlier in the year, will get an all-day half-hourly daily terminator from Stratford starting tomorrow, using the new two-way single track from Lea Bridge station. (I presume the new junction has a name, but I've not heard it. Lea Bridge junction maybe?) -- Basil Jet recently enjoyed...

West Hamstead North London Line Station
For the first time in ages, I alighted yesterday at West Hampstead Station on the North London Line.

It's spacious and well lit and is an improvement on the previous arrangement. I don't know how...

In message , at 12:29:56 on Sun, 14 Jul 2019, Clank remarked: Roland Perry Wrote in message: That's where the albeit fairly rare dual-SIM phone has a role. Only, for some reason, rare in the UK.
