Defective Dot Matrix Displays on the Tube

Every so often the platform indicators & in carriage displays have a funny turn. Sometimes this results in the trains being bound for strange locations as Laura from
@AboutLondon spotted yesterday.

Sevthamsters on Victoria Line by @AboutLondon

Last week my London Underground train appeared to be pretty excited about the next stations it was travelling to. Some exclamation marks created a dramatic pause before announcing where we should change to get on the Northern Line:

Change for the !! Northern Line

It was also very pleased about pulling into Piccadilly Circus and South Kensington

Next Station is !! South Kensington

Next Station is !! Piccadilly Circus

If you spot any other borked displays on your journey let me know.

As yet I still don't think much can beat the Northern Line offering a God Service.
