This 'n' that

Had to go to Goodge Steet this morning.. skipped down the escalator at Waterloo, then the steps - could 'hear' a train in the platform, and ran round the corner just as the doors closed. Damn! Next train: 9 minutes wait!

Eventually got to Goodge Street. Up the steps from the platform... to the lifts - just as the lift doors closed. Damn! Ran up the steps to keep myself fit, to watch the woman in front of me actually DO that thing with Oystercards that is often joked about but I've never seen. She had hers in the bottom of her handbag and simply palced her handbag on top of the reader, and the gates opened! Nice.

Talking of gates, I saw these at Canarfy Wharf the other week and took a picture of them.

They're a new design that I haven't seen before.. anyone seen any other instances of these new gates anywhere on the network? Just wondered.
