Moquette Quiz

And the winners are.......

It appears you do know your moquette even though the Jubilee Line appear to be cheapskates and use Piccadilly line moquette on certain trains, and the Bakerloo line moquette has also been seen on the Victoria Line, just to confuse the issue.

The answers to the
tube seat upholstery quiz were:

Guess the moquette1. Metropolitan Line
2. Central Line (only now seen on dog coats)
3. District Line
4. Bakerloo Line
5. Northern & District Lines (or pencil cases)
6. Central Line
7. District Line
8. Jubilee Line
9. DLR
10. District Line
11. Circle/Hammersmith & City Line
12. Piccadilly Line

Also the first four designers of moquette were Marion Dorn, Norbet Dutton, Enid Marx and Paul Nash.

I decided to give some bonus surprise prizes for inventive moquette names to Munks, for Carpet Chaos, Bapps, for Sea of Sharks and Rich for Autumn Fleet, but the winner of the Mind The Gap socks is Jonny Lyon.
