Last Metro
I love the first and last trains of the metro service because the system is often quite empty then (excluded from this are the last trains on weekends). I love it how the architecture of the stations can really shine, and you have space to appreciate it; and how the few passengers you come across suddenly become individual human beings again instead of the faceless mass that you encounter in the more rushed hours.

As spotted on the Underground this morning.
God love the chaps at London Transport.

Okay, I think the unofficial celebrations may be the best thing about the 50th.

Sometimes when I’m on the Tube escalators, I lose all sense of reality and perspective.
