Trains from Walford East Poster

Thanks to
@jamescridland this is probably the closest you'll get to finding how to get to Albert Square by Tube.

James spotted the London Underground poster showing "Trains for Walford East" at the National Media Museum in Bradford.

You'll never hear any of the characters from EastEnders talking about going to Bromley-By-Bow, as this station is replaced by Walford East on their fictional Tube map. Apparently there has been mention of a Walford West station, but looking at the poster it doesn't appear to be on the District Line.

Walford East Tube appears quite often in EastEnders now, usually when one of the characters is running away from home. I imagine Peggy Mitchell was probably sashayed her way towards it when she made her exit from the show a few weeks ago.

Also since February this year, CGI effects were used to show District Line trains hurtling through Walford on a regular basis.

Now all we need are some of the characters to moan about the next Tube Strike in October and we'll have an even more realistic use of the London Underground in Enders!

Speaking of strikes - talks take place later today to try to stop the next set which are scheduled for 3rd October, 2nd November and 28th November.
