Finally!

I knew it would happen, it just never actually did happen. TfL (and Boris) wanted it so much it was certain to happen at some point.

I think that I can post this now:

My point entirely, its taken so long. But it is the TfL official map. I think they have forgot to change the night tube map.

Will it automatically update the picture if the original is updated?

That would have been quite handy on my attempt last Friday. Instead of finding the second last train out of Amersham* going to Wembley Park and thinking 'what use is that?' The Jubilee Line will be available from there (and I live very close to a Northern Line station).

* I can't remember where the last train goes, but it is even less useful.

The last passenger departure from Amersham operates as far as Rickmansworth (then gets parked in the sidings).
This is a Central line train to "Woodford via Hainault"- it always is, except when you actually want one!

When I last went to the London Transport Museum last month, they had a lenticular poster (which is one of those covered in lenses so that as you move your angle of view it transitions from one picture to another) which changed from the normal tube map to the night tube map. The only thing was that it was glaringly obvious that the maps did not line up.
