Default Battersea Power Station Station


https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Batter...n_tube_station

It looks like the station will be called "Battersea Power Station". If
that's the name that goes on the platform roundels, will the blue canopy
over the door say "Battersea Power Station Station"?

We might do better than that:

Battersea Power Station Station, Battersea.

....except it's in Nine Elms.

I would have called it "Dogs & Cats".

Yes, with a SW8 post code to prove it.

I am reminded of the moment when BR decided all London termini had to be
prefixed with "London", leading to "London London Bridge" being announced on
the Southern Region.

Trains to Brighton from the Lewes direction have a Digital Doris station
list the ends "London Road Brighton Brighton" which just sounds like
something has broken.
