Guerilla Rail Signs

Thanks to Matt Moore from The Telegraph who featured a couple of pictures from my blog for a article on
Guerilla Rail & Road Signs. They're spoof signs from around the world which fight back against ones we face each day telling us what or what not to do.

Spotted on the Gatwick Express by Fimb's friend

He featured one of my favourites from Gatwick Express. Also the alternative Penalty Fares photo was selected:

Alternative to Penalty Fare by Peter F

Thanks again to Fimb & Peter F who sent both of those into me.

Although this one taken by James Whatley wasn't featured in the article, I think would have been a contender.

Peak Hours may mean lap sitting by Whatleydude

To me, great spoof signs, are ones that you hardly notice, but when you do, you start looking around the carriage wondering if other people have seen them too. You then start getting hopeful that some tourists might also see them & ask fellow passengers or staff what the deal is with them.

You kind of hope they will appear in blogs around the world or in letters back to friends & families. "You know in London the subway is so crowded people have sit on each other's laps. It's true I saw it. There was a sign and everything".

If you see any other spoof signs on your Tube or rail journey please let me know. In the meantime enjoy the signs in the Telegraph.
