The Night Tube – One Year Ago

I featured the night tube several times last year, including its first night, and today is the first anniversary of its beginnings on the Central and Victoria Lines, 19th August 2016.

Here are some pictures from that very first night. Most have not been published before. All taken in the early hours of Saturday morning, 20th August 2016 to about 3.30am.

For some it was perhaps a bit too much. Best doze off those twenty minutes until the next Hainault train arrives!
