Stickers on the Central Line


Tottenham Court Road station has a good heart, nevertheless over time it has been overcome by the stampedes of tourists passing through. Sadly, there are not enough charitable organisations to offer the support these traumatised stations need. As a result Tottenham Court Road has taken it upon itself to reduce traffic and at the same time generate some pocket money.

As the issues surrounding sustainability rise and rise, TFL have decided to jump on the bandwagon. After being awarded 2 million pounds for the complete refurbishment of White City station their cost breakdown was made public after much legal wrangling:
£20,000 - Change of title deed
£1.98 million - Associated administration costs
34p - Energy saving bulb

TFL have been introducing single stations to other tube lines which share similar timetables or operating hours ensuring that they have something in common hopefully igniting a spark…

Tube maps are surprisingly shy. While it’s nice to feel appreciated, few want tourists gawping at them all day.

To lighten the mood of passengers, the Central Line is home to a large monopoly game on the 3rd Sunday of each month. In similar fashion to the classic board game each station can be bought and sold. Rents start low if there is only 1 ticket barrier on it, but expect to pay big money if the station has been developed to ticket office level. The game is won when all other participants have no money left on their Oyster card.

To celebrate the Champions League final TFL have decided to deviate the Central Line from its existing route. In similar fashion to Ronaldo, it may not be the most efficient or practical way of doing things but if it looks good that’s all that matters.

On winning ‘Quaintest Village of the Year 2011’ at a Reader’s Digest award ceremony, the pensioners of Perivale village were overjoyed. However, Perivale Village Council had bigger ideas, and voted to re-name the village in the hope of adding some  spice to the lives of its residents. Their local station name has also been changed  accordingly.

Everyone needs a rest, even Bank. However, it’s probably better not to do it when we’re looking.

The Republic of Somalia is one of the most popular destinations for Brits. Its diverse cuisine and rich architecture makes it a must see place. After much debate and political pressures, TFL have finally been granted permission to provide a safe passage to the hottest tourist destination of the year.

To celebrate the opening of the 2012 London Olympics, London Mayor Boris Johnson announced that the front 5 carriages of every tube train will be reserved for first class ticket holders only. Benefits will include complementary coffee, exclusive access to a selection of Underground stations and the ability to feel slightly smug as you watch fellow commuters cram into the remaining 3 carriages.

As the Central Line runs right under the City’s financial district, TFL in their wisdom have decided in install stickers with live share prices, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

TFL often undertakes works to the Central Line during the weekend. This is essential for the safety of its passengers. Unfortunately in this case, the red line was printed with cheap ink. It therefore has a tendacy to spontaniously snap, with fatal consequences.

For years we’ve been told that the tube stops at 12.30am, but now we can exclusively reveal the reality. Between the hours of 1am and 5am the Central Line turns into a Grand Prix track whereby trains must complete 3 ‘laps’ of the Central Line. As a result several modifications are essential, such as a pit stop where faults that would ordinarily cause hours of delays can be fixed in less than a minute enabling trains to quickly rejoin the race.

The east end of the Central Line has given its true identity away, C-7842537 from the planet Tanner Celli. Beware London! The Central Line is no longer safe, we must all now abandon it!
