Finally had a play on the new Elizabeth Line. The stations are big, bright and beautiful, the trains whisper quiet and super smooth. Returning to the Underground (narrow platforms, exposed ducting, screeching brakes) is quite the juxtaposition.

Looking down the long platform at Bond Street station.

@paulrobertlloyd It had newly opened when we were in London in early June. The tube station (Canary Wharf) closest to where we were staying was on the Elizabeth line. Our first impression was, whoa! London tube is awesome!

@Iquitoz Thereโ€™s a lovely story behind the Mind the Gap announcement at that particular station.

@paulrobertlloyd Very lovely indeed. Extremely nice of the TFL staff to resurrect her husband's voice. Keeps and shows a bit of humanity in this technological world. ๐Ÿ˜Š
