Tube line diagrams - where to find?

Post by FlyingScot » 10 Aug 2014, 12:27

I'm trying to find those vertical tube line diagrams with the time between stations, that you normally find on the platforms (they tend to be close to a platform entrance).

Are there PDF's of these anywhere? I've tried the TFL website but so far no good.

These would be much handier to glance at than the timings on a page in the Working Timetables

Cheers

Can't you just print out P3 of the WTT? This has the time between stations on it.

Hi 'Cat,
Yeah I had seen those when I downloaded the WTT's a while back, but I find the platform diagrams easier to grasp. Especially if trying to calculate on the hoof!

I'm sure I'll survive... I think! :-)
Hope everyone else's preparation for this week is going fine!

It is really annoying trying to calculate times for stations like Kenton, Westminster, North Harrow, Piccadilly Circus and South Wimbledon - none of which have enough operational importance to be mentioned in the WTTs, but all of which have importance in my route. South Wimbledon is especially a pain, because you can't measure accurate times from Morden because the trains all hang around outside for a bit.

I don't trust the Tube line diagrams in the stations - firstly, they tend to be slightly on the early side, and secondly, I can never find them when I'm looking for them. I've tried to find them online (for something different), but I can't.
