Tube Seat Pencil Case Quiz

London Underground Pencil Case up for grabs

The day before I left for France I picked up a cool pencil case and draught excluder made from Tube Seat upholstery:

Tube Seat Upholstery Pencil Case

They were made by the mother of a regular contributor to this blog and hopefully she is going to start selling them on e-bay - the pencil case will start at seven pounds (plus P & P) and the draught excluder - seventeen pounds (plus P & P).

Tube seat draught excluder

However, you can win a pencil case by answering the following questions:

1) Which London Underground Line does or did the upholstery come from?
2) Whose mum makes the pencil cases and draught excluders?
3) Which line on the London Underground has the newest design of upholstery?
4) What's the generic term used for this type of upholstery?
5) There was a popular urban myth going round about the sorts of nasty things that were found on Tube seats. Name one of the things supposedly found on them (anybody being a smart alec and naming more than one will be disqualified). There is a bonus point on this answer, if you don't name the same thing as the person who guessed before you.

To enter leave your answers in the comments below with your email address and/or blog/website. Please leave all five answers in one comment - no second guesses! You have until Sunday 2nd April 23.59 GMT to enter. If more than one person has the most points they will go into Neil's paperclip selection.

Good luck!
