Well big news is that the Central Line is more or less getting back to normal - which means apart from running from Marble Arch and Bethnal Green, 69 days after the service was closed - there's delays and late running. Great to see the tube running to normal timetable again. Apparently the London Underground are paying out �20 million pounds in compensation for the 9 week closure. To see how you can get your share visit
Going Underground. It's money for old rope!

Although somehow I bet we'll end up paying for it next year. The MD of the tube Paul Godier reckons that the closure of the Central Line had cost London Underground a total of �40 million, including �12 million in lost revenue. Mmmm looking forward to buying my annual travelcard this year before it shoots up.
