London Transport Shines a Light!


THE LONDON UNDERGROUND LIGHT BOX


Here's a novel gift idea that I found in my recent Christmas stocking, after dropping
a few hints. It's a plug-in London Underground Light Box which can also run on
six batteries. It must be the ultimate gift to take home for anyone visiting London.
I first saw it in the Stationary Store Rymans and was really quite taken with it.
I also saw it for sale while visiting The London Transport Museum Shop in
Covent Garden while running around town over Christmas. And it sells for
£29.99.
And with it you get 10 signs that you slide into the side of it. Those signs being.....
MIND THE GAP, LONDON, OXFORD CIRCUS, COVENT GARDEN, WATERLOO,
KING'S CROSS ST PANCRAS, PICCADILLY, ANGEL, VICTORIA and of course
UNDERGROUND.
I've noticed that it seems a lot brighter when you plug it into the mains with the
USB plug. So for now I just run it on the six batteries and it looks just fine set up on
the wall of my little spare room.

A few pictures below.

  1. Place in the window early in the day. You can give boys a ride on the 'morning wood express'.
