I got a tube the other day.
Doesn't happen often, but I had to go to work.
I got on at Liverpool Street, and got off at Holborn. Three stops. About 3 p.m. Full but not crowded.
I've just googled how many people you get in a central line train (what the internet is for, clearly). There are 272 seats, and eight carriages, so there must have been 34 people sitting in my carriage. Plus another 20 or so standing.
Only one of them was reading an actual book.
