Acrostics from the Tube

Can you identify a station from just a paving slab? Sadly, some people can

"Wooden" doesn't begin with "s", but it was a long station name so thanks for trying...

Happily, our Underground network service looks optimistic, with wonderfully efficient Saturday timetables.

Anyone for Hatton Cross? After that I propose we spell out the station names as follows: "Heathrow Terminal Four", "Heathrow Terminals Two And Three", and (reversing to complete the line) "Heathrow Terminal Five".

HattonCross? A train terminus otherwise, never can really operate sub surface.

(That's a good one!)

Here, everyone attempts the hardest run of words: three elongated representations. Must I now allow long forms of Underground roundels?

Hurrah! Eventually, a theme has recurred. Obviously, we're taking extreme risks. Many interested neighbours are looking for intelligent verbiage. Excellent!

Next: Northern from Kennington to High Barnet, via Charing Cross (with a diversion to Mill Hill East).

Exciting music by a notable keyboard musician entertains neurotic teenagers.

What's a "crusation"?

Less experienced instrumentalists could easily support the established rockers. Status Quo usually attract regular enthusiasts.
