de_Selby: I've always loved the various mind-the-gap announcments.

As an outsider who spends a couple days every  year in London, I find the tube amazing.

I've lived in many cities with subways, and visited even more, but London's is by far the best.

Whatever its problems, breakdowns, closings, etc., it has a fascinating history, and an endearing variety of equipment.

I loved Dara O'Briain's standub about the London Underground bombings and the way Londoners reacted. "Oh my god, there's been a bomb on the Circle line. I can take the Central Line and change at the Northern Line...."

The local mass transit around here has the announcement "STAN CLEAR THE DOORS, PLEASE"

It's been the announcement now for at least 25 years, I think it's about time ol' Stan retired.

I guess it was too much effort for the BBC to provide an audio recording of said announcement on their website. :(
