#well that’s the role of a lifetime if i ever saw one
Am I the only one thinking that if he’s coming from Charing Cross, Thor’s gonna have to change at least twice; once at Embankment to get on the Circle or District line, then again at Tower Hill to get the DLR at Tower Gateway to Lewisham. OR if he’s going to North Greenwich he has to change at Waterloo for the Jubilee line.
And all this without an Oyster Card? Good luck mate.
aka the reason I laugh when I watch this trailer
REBLOGGING THIS AGAIN FOR EXCELLENT PUBLIC TRANSPORT COMMENTARY. Thor you really need an oystercard
I SWEAR I JUST STARTED CRYING BECAUSE THIS IS SO TRUE
And it takes at least an hour to get there and that looks like rush hour too. Plus, if that’s a weekend, some if not all of DLR is probably down for maintenance work like the decrepid needy shit it is.
Thor 2 spoilers: there is a whole hour dedicated to Thor trying to find his way around the London Underground.
Reblogging for the second time today because it got even better.
what do you mean “all of this without an oyster card”? it’ll cost the same as one journey cos you just change tubes at the station, you don’t have to go through the barriers again. busted.
He’s got to get out though. He’s a bit too conspicuous to just vault over the turnstiles.
I know I had to swipe out when I left one station to get on the DLR to Greenwich but I suspect I was taking a ridiculous route to kill time.
The best purely tube-only route from Charing X to Greenwich would be Northern to Waterloo, Jubilee to Canary Wharf/Heron Quays, DLR to Cutty Sark. Cutty Sark, like most DLR stations, doesn’t have barriers, so he can leave the station without an Oyster.
However, without an Oyster, he won’t be able to change from the Jubilee to the DLR (you have to actually pass through the barriers at CW to do so), so depending on whether that train’s northbound or southbound he either needs to go Tottenham Court Road -> Central line to Bank -> DLR to Cutty Sark, or Waterloo -> Jubilee to London Bridge -> Northern (Bank branch) to Bank -> DLR to Cutty Sark.
If we assume he’s willing to vault the barriers, though, then, the truly sensible thing to do would be to get off one stop down from CX at Embankment (or just get out of CX entirely, as the distance is so short you might as well walk it), exit the station, and FLY ALONG THE RIVER to Greenwich using Mjolnir. Or get the Thames Clipper. Either would be equally fun. Sure, only one involves flying, but you can get a beer on the Clipper.
