100/270: #LadbrokeGrove – The Step

You may notice a rather gargantuan step down onto the train as you board at Ladbroke Grove. Steps up, at stations served by the S-Stock at least, are not uncommon – especially at platforms with a transitional height between tube stock and sub surface stock such as Hammersmith (066) or Turnham Green (063). Stepping down onto an S-Stock however must mean the platform here is unusually high. Perhaps a hangover (a really long hangover, the type you’d get after a three day bender) from main line rolling stock days? Answers on a postcard below…
