    This line, essentially a Bakerloo relief line, took over the Bakerloo line from Stanmore to Baker Street and continued in new tunnels south of Baker Street ending at a (temporary) terminus at Charing Cross, with a view to subsequently extending further eastwards.

    The eventual extension was different from that originally planned and the new line branched off the existing one south of Green Park station in the Westminster direction. In doing so, it isolated the short section to Charing Cross station, which was closed at the same time as the new extension opened.

    Not part of the station, but we were held at a red signal. I opened the drivers door and this is the space between the side of the train and the tunnel wall between stations... tight :|
