"Your New Met" Tube Poster from London Transport Museum

Not exactly an infographic but interesting historical
new poster of the 1960's Metropolitan Line extension from London Transport Museum.

Your new Met poster from London Transport Musuem

It's a reproduction of a 1960's poster that introduced the newly modernised Metropolitan Line 50 years ago, with the "new" extension.  It's £9.95 and available online here.

And for those who are old enough, you might remember the iconic Metropolitan line trains with their high back seats and commodious luggage racks. London Transport Museum have rescued a limited number of these original 1960's luggage racks from decommissioned Metropolitan Line trains. You can buy them online from £150 or at the Museum’s Covent Garden shop from March 2012.
