Default Curious Tube map on BBC story

http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/england/london/4794122.stm

This BBC story, about the Paris metro map drawn by Harry Beck being
exhibited in the new LT Museum, also has a small crop of the Tube map -
which looks rather strange! Does anyone know what this map is/was used
for, and if there is a full-size version available?

Indeed - but this map predates the decision to drop the Kingston Crossrail
branch from the proposal.

And also includes the West London Transit system, which brings the total
number of stations in Acton to 8 (North, South, East, West, Central, Town,
Vale, and just plain "Acton"). Not bad, considering it's about a quarter of
the size of Portsmouth (rough guess by playing with a map and a ruler),
which has 4 ....

The current plan is to stop there, but I seem to remember that at one
stage, when the two western branches were to Heathrow and Kingston,
various stations were omitted from Crossrail's plan, including Acton
Main Line and St Margarets. The TfL map was drawn up at that time.

Also, I know we're getting the Olympics but there looks like a HUGE amount
of rail track is to be added east of the Metrollops.

Some of it'll be over old routes, I suppose, but that which is proposed
around Ilford and Barking looks likely to cause some major disturbance
whether it goes on stilts or cut 'n cover.
