Tubewatch (41)Mind the gap
The Underground operates a turn-up-and-go service. You don't usually need a timetable, you simply arrive at a station safe in the knowledge that there'll be a train soon. Except on certain parts of the network, that is, where trains run slightly less frequently and you might have to wait a bit. Below is a list of all the parts of the network where trains run at intervals of ten minutes or more. Not that a ten minute wait is bad, you understand, just unusual. I wonder if passengers waiting to travel round the corners of the Circle line ever realise that they have one of the least frequent tube services? Every 10 minutes: Turnham Green → Richmond, Acton Town → Ealing Broadway, Ealing Common → Rayners Lane, Heathrow5 → Heathrow123, Hatton Cross → Heathrow4 → H123, Stonebridge Park → Harrow & Wealdstone, High Street Kensington → Gloucester Road, High Street Kensington → Earl's Court, Liverpool Street → Tower Hill, Liverpool Street → Aldgate East. Every 15 minutes: Moor Park → Watford/Chalfont & Latimer, Finchley Central → Mill Hill East Every 20 minutes: Hainault → Woodford Every 30 minutes: Chalfont & Latimer → Amersham/Chesham, Earl's Court → Kensington (Olympia)* (* if the shuttle's even running) For the purposes of this post, I'm assuming it's noon on a weekday.
