Pulling out of Waterloo station on the Bakerloo line today we heard the following announcement:
‘Passengers are reminded that flash photography is not allowed anywhere on the London Underground network. This is because the drivers’ eyes are adjusted to the dark in the tunnels and a flash can temporarily blind us causing delays. If you really want photographs of dusty old trains, may I recommend the London Transport museum – nearest stop Covent Garden. Alternatively, you could get a life.’
Something tells me this was not one of the official pre-recorded train announcements.
