    Default LUL Charing cross - 2008/9


    Hi All

    Well saved the best till last, this is the LUL station at Charing cross, it no longer has a passenger service but the station is kept in tip top condition, it`s now used for training of LUL staff and also used as a location to try out new signage and other LUL activaties.
    The station has also been used to film major motion pictures like "28 months later" and "Skyfall".

    You walk in to Charing cross tube station and you turn to the left to access the new station but a bland looking white door leads down to the gem of disused London underground stations.



    A station with no people........







    Off of the main station are a number of passanger tunnels that are now used as air shafts.





    You can walk around verious passages and then end up looking down through air grills to the active passenger platforms.
    (And if you are a big kid like me you can make ghost noises and watch the people below looking confused)





    Well thats it for Charing cross, there are one or two more pictures on my FlickR page so head on over to :-

    So thanks for looking and all comments are most welcome.

    Cheers Newage

    I thought Charing Cross was still being used. Another interesting post. Thanks for these.
