    That could get expensive. You don't know how many 6ft 4in people in 92 Squadron beanie hats will be there!

    Ah, if they're wearing beanie hats then they won't be me as I'll be wearing just the one beanie hat. :)

    Baker st is a bit busy, but not even close to rush hour, though theres a bit too much orange jacket and officialdom hurdling people around.

    The other stations are relatively light for people ( well probably a lot more than a usual Sunday morning).. But definitely not overcrowded.
    Faringdon for me for the first one.. As its the only one in daylight, into the rabbit warren for the others

    Oh dear what a dissapointment, in the last hour they brought a unit in to platform 3 to display completely obscuring the entire train on platform 4, It's bedlam at the steps as everyone wants a view but no one can see anything!..there's thousands here now blocking plat 2 and stairs..
    Fiasco !

    The unit is in LUL 150 colours and will remain until 2255 apparently.

    The message is don't go to Moorgate unless you have a ticket !.. You wont get on Plat 4 without one, This is the best view you will get from plat2/3

    Rather grainy from Earl's Court due to the lack of light and my limited camera skills. And a shame all the contrasting District Line trains vanished at the wrong moment!

    Went to Notting Hill Gate this morning, fairly busy but not rammed like I thought it was going to be. Stock looked amazing and Met 1 sounded incredible too!
