West Hamstead North London Line Station
For the first time in ages, I alighted yesterday at West Hampstead Station on the North London Line. This station has been a building site for a very long time and it now seems the work is nearing completion. The old entrance hall is closed and on Sunday a new one opened a few yards further south. 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. The reason is obvious: so many phones are either SIM-locked to one provider, or are fitted with SIMs on non-rollover tariffs, that the opportunities for fitting a second true-Pay-as-you-go...

I'm no military expert but I can't really see what its purpose would have been. If the germans had got to cockfosters then it would have been game over for the tube and probably the country so what was...
