051/270: #Pimlico – The Exception To The Rule

Pimlico is the only station on the Victoria Line not to offer an interchange with another railway or tube line. This in some ways is an often neglected attribute of the Victoria Line, it’s a transport hub of hubs if you will. It’s an exceptionally clever piece of urban planning that to this day makes the Victoria Line one of the most efficient lines in the city. Naturally there has to be an exception to the rule, and that exception is Pimlico.

Different too are the backlit roundels, which used to be a feature of all the stations on the Victoria Line. For whatever reason they were replaced with basic enamel ones, except of course at Pimlico.
