H&I, evening rush hour

The doors were trying to close at this point. There's something of an overcrowding problem on this line.


Most trains on the NLL are standing room only from the first train of the morning until about 10am, then from about 2:30pm until 9, and all day on Sundays. TfL's plans to replace the 23 current trains with 24 new ones of the same length in 2009 suggests that the overcrowding issue isn't going to go away any time soon, particularly when the likely explosion in passenger numbers takes place as Oyster pre-pay is introduced on the route next year.
