One of the most famous station - Baker Street

Probably it would be unnecessary to go on about what Baker Street is famous for here!
However, just in case people who are not familiar with Sharlock holmes, please google it now - is the most famous detective series in the world.
The main character is supposed to be living on 221b Baker Street.
Yes, there is a museum for it.
Hence, the station has a Sharlock Holmes profile as a tile design on it's walls.

Baker Street is not only the most famous station, but also one of the oldest stations.
He and Waterloo are very old friends - the Baker-loo friendship has been more than 100 years!

Baker Street actually fond of creating and collecting wax dolls, figurines. The display room is huge, the amazingly realistic dolls sometimes frighten innocent visitors... XD

Be flowerly!

Here's a new character, Kew Gardens!
She's a princess like figure with very long hair which glow from pale blond to pale green. Her voice is like a little bird tweets and somehow she's got a slight German accent.
There are always a lot of flowers on her hair. They are different for each seasons and this one you are looking at is actually Summer flowers! She loves these little Fuchsia hair ornament, which is a top fashion of the season.
Her dress, which has some Chinese influenced details, is made with lovely silk and changes its color slightly from dusk till down.
Well, generally she's a graceful and cheerful lady but in Winter time, she becomes a bit less colorful and moody than she is in Spring & Summer, obviously ;)
Many people think she doesn't like rainy day, but actually she loves it.

small but spicy - Angel

Angel looks classy - at a glance.
Always wearing posh clothings and flying around like a butterfly. Mind you, he's got a very bad mouth sometimes, and that is one of his charms.
He's a good mate of King's Cross, as they grew up side by side for 100 years. As you can see here, him, King's cross and St Pancras International weere about to go to bed in a matching night dress. :)

While Tottenham is away from Leicester...

At the moment, Northern line is not stopping at Tottenham c.r. station, which means Tottenham hasn't got connections to Leicester Sq & Goodge Street. While the best friend Tottenham is away, Leicester has got more time to hang around by himself...

Nobody knows...

Lovely Victoria... she had so many encounters and farewells in her long history.
Like an old song - Nobody knows the troubles she's seen, nobody knows her sorrow.

Super Charing X fighter

Just an idea if all Tube station characters are in a fighting game...?
Charing X is very easy to imagine!

A dark...mysterious...bookwarm...Charing X

Embankment's younger brother, Charing X is a person who's got complicated history.
His multiple personality - ish attitude sometimes confuses other stations - Embankment is the main victim. Still, the brothers get along with each other and both have some respect!
Charing X resembles King's X a bit, but much much darker...! While King's X's friendly air attracts others, Charing X scares most of stations away. XD Ah!

Sneak preview of a new character!

Hi! Long time no see, it's hi from Chie... if you still remember me...
Anyway, here is the rough of my new character, Piccadilly Circus!
She's absolutely charming, talkative and friendly person.
She's like a brother and sister with Leicester Square (btw I love him...)but I think Green Park and South Kensington (not yet appeared but you'll see him soon) are sometimes overwhelmed by her.
She looks young, but nobody know her real age...

The king is a good listener

Got a trouble? Waterl0o is a person you go to when you need some help!
He's brave but patient, is the person of justice and sincerity. He listens your stories carefully, and has got some good advices handy.
Even 'Mr.poker face' Warren Street seems loosening his expressions when talking to Waterl0o!!

The king by the river - Waterl0o

Here comes one of the busiest stations in Europe, Waterl0o!
He is also famous for the song "Waterloo Sunset" by the Kinks as well as a historical location for "the battele of Waterloo". Some people might also know him from the fact that he was an international station for Eurostar till 2007.

Due to the full house, he had to give up taking the international service, and passed on to St Pancras. The international station became called St Pancras international, and he is under a good care of two brothers - King's Cross & St Pancras.

His great personality is much loved by other stations, as Baker Street says, who has been his close friend for 105 years! This over 100 years of Baker - loo friendship seems still very much alive.

Happy Birthday King's X!

On 10th January in 1863, one of the busiest stations, King's X station was born, now it's named King's X St Pancras.
I'm always amazed just thinking about that they have been seeing numerous events in their long history including two World Wars.
