Mayor Pledges to Support Disused Tube Station Re-openings

Are we a step nearer to seeing abandoned London Underground stations getting re-opened?  A number of meetings are taking place very soon, that could certainly help to move the project along.  As
I have mentioned in the past, I'm voluntarily doing some social media consultancy for the Old London Underground Company who are on a mission to try to re-open a number of disused stations for tours & tourist attractions.

Next week, the company's founder Ajit Chambers is meeting the Mayor's Office to progress dicussions. Above is a video of some of the pledges that Boris has made in support of the project.

Sam Mullins the Director of London Transport Museum who have run a number of very successful tours of the dis-used Aldwych Tube station, is also meeting Ajit in the near future.

Finally, following a phone call with Downing Street, a couple of MPs are going on a site visit to see the potential & scope of what would be needed to open some of the stations.

Good luck to the team for upcoming meetings & tours and in the meantime here's Part One of some raw video footage of a private tour of Brompton Road Tube station which was uploaded to the Old London Underground Company's blog just before Christmas.
