Had another little trip (heavy sarcasm) on the Docklands Light Railway today. It's hard to know whether the DLR is part of the London Underground or not really. I spose real trainspotters would say no, because it's hardly underground. But I'm in two minds about it, as it starts underground at Monument/Bank. The thing that I find freaky about the DLR is that there are no drivers. So you can get on the front of the train and see the view the driver would see - you're sitting right at the front of the train. It's like when you were little and sat on the top of a double decker bus and pretended to be driving. Well just think of a whole load of city geezers doing the same thing every day as they head out to Canary Wharf and Heron Quays and Cutty Sark and places that sound as though they should be in Treasure Island.
