A man with a depth, Embank₥ent

A man who used to known as so many different names.
Finally he settled down with the current name, "Embank₥ent", but Tottenham ₡ourt Road has never been bothered remembering it.
The man with the depth, as other stations say that he sometimes goes off to a riverside and quietly sit down on a bench into his thought. He doesn't speak much but as you get know him better, you'll find more about his character.

His peaceful life sometimes hilariously ruined by Tottenham ₡ourt Road, Leicester $quare and ₱iccadilly Circus. XD

I wonder if Victoria ever realised that he secretly in love with her...?

Season's greetings from metro girls

These two ladies (stations) were born on 24th December (do not ask their age!), so they are not only celebrating the festive season, but being doubly joyful for their own birthday!

A boy-like lady, Sloane Square

Let us introduce a Victoria's good friend, Sloane Square!
Although her stylish look, she has got a boy-like charm.
She's particularly fond of green outfits, and the colour somehow suits her so well.
Some stations (inc. Hackney) are approaching her eagerly, but she seems not interested in anyone...just yet.
