Peter,

Many thanks for the link in answer to my question on the origins of Random 15. I had searched the archive to no avail. Little did I know it was headed "Tubefest 07 Thursday night challenge." No wonder I couldn't find it!

This is a Central line train to "Woodford via Hainault"- it always is, except when you actually want one!

There's two entrances across the road from each other, so on the street view below: the left entrance.

There is an entrance in Turnmill Street as well, although I think that is only open in the peaks.
