Happy Christmas Eve

Eerily quiet on the Tube today with most sensible people taking today as a holiday. Covent Garden station was virtually empty at 9.30 making it look like the set for 28 Days Later or some other apocalyptic end of the world film with Will Smith in it.

New Year's Travel

So instead of showing the ghostly platform (it was too miserable to be reminded that I'm working today) here's a reminder of the free travel for all you New Year's Eve Tube Revellers. Rather than the responsible drinking or irresponsible boozing sponsors of years gone by, Nat West again have the honour of giving us free travel from 23:45 on New Year's Eve to 04:30 on New Year's Day.

Happy Xmas to the Tube on Christmas Day - the one day in the year when there's no trains running (the last time they ran on Xmas Day was in 1979) and the time's ripe for the graffiti artists to have fun again.

And on that note, Merry Xmas to you all and here's to a peaceful 2008!
