Acrostics from the Tube

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

Can't handle it! Grasshoppers will eat lice, luckily.

I'll repeat Woodford since it's the terminus.

Which ones? Ordinary doves, forsooth, or rock doves?

To complete the network I propose a joint Central/District journey from West Acton via Ealing Broadway to Chiswick Park, followed by a grand finale at Kensington Olympia!

Elvis actually lives! I'm not going barmy, really. Openly asked directly, witnesses answer "yes".

(I'm talking about Elvis Costello, of course.) :wink:

I said: "a joint Central/District journey from West Acton via Ealing Broadway to Chiswick Park, followed by a grand finale at Kensington Olympia". Ealing Common next, followed by Acton Town and Chiswick Park.

Evidently, a line is not good. Come on, make more observations now!

Action? Ceilings travel on nights. Trains only want November.

Council health inspectors shouldn't wear inappropriate clothing - kinky pants and racy knickers.

Since no one else has appeared for the grand finale, I'll do the honours myself:

Kudos! Every network station is now gone. There's officially not one left. You've managed perfection in acrostics!
