A chill in the air

Winter's here! And it's officially cold. And just last week as I sat waiting for my District Line train to leave at 08.30 in the morning, and the wind and the cold swept though the train, I cursed London Underground for having trains with four open doors on the side.

Well not so this morning! I've never seen this before, and wondered if this is a new practice they've started doing, but the two trains waiting to leave Wimbledon this morning had just ONE set of doors (out of the four) on each carriage open, meaning that it was distincly less chilly as you waited for your departure! Is that a good idea or what?

When the train came to leave though, all the doors had to momentarily open before 'beeping' shut, but I just thought I'd say "nice one" to LU for doing that because it's such a simple and yet effective thing to do.

Now - Has anybody seen that Olympic coloured customised Circle Line train that's going round . . . Neil?
