Light at the end of the tunnel

UPDATE: three-minute delay on the tube going home today, but we'll forgive it as it didn't cause me to miss my connecting train to Hampton Court.  That train was a minute late, though, so another £2.50.  Not a bad day for TfL, all things considered.

The train from Hersham to Waterloo this morning was a minute late, which is not so bad when you look back at my history of this journey.  Still, it's worth £2.50.

The connecting Bakerloo Line from Waterloo to Edgware Road was suffering 'minor' delays due to an earlier signal failure, leading to a further two-minute delay, but I have to add another three minutes to that owing to have to take a later tube because of the first delay.  So six minutes and £15 overall this morning.

On an only tangentially-related note, take a look at some of the beautiful pictures and videos generated here.  It's a visualisation of Oyster card journey data.

Pretty, n'est-ce pas?  And it can be used for all sorts of useful stuff.
