DLR Extension open two weeks early

London Underground early - what's the world coming to?

Many thanks to
Diamond Geezer, Stephen Knight and Chris Green for all seperately telling me that the DLR extension to City Airport opened two weeks earlier than scheduled. It opened very quietly and unannounced (I think because the shock of it being early will have killed some people). DiamondGeezer said that meant that the stations were virtually empty when he travelled on them on Saturday.

Check out his photos on his Flickr photostream, and now we have the very wonderful pub like named "King George V" station at the end of the line until it is further extended in 2009.
