    The name of the station in The Angel, Islington, is simply Angel.

    If there was a competition for witty signatures, I'd come last.

    Hmm, no wonder I couldnt find the croydon one, I googled the question, found the answer, and found the station STILL exists. :huh:

    Just it&#39;s got a different name.

    Actually, it&#39;s had 3 different names before the current, and is also a mainline station.

    Oh, you may need a 1968 map to catch it, too.

    What this Quiz has done is make me look in detail at the newer line developments of the Tube Map: Who on earth decided that Mudchute would be a nice name for a Tube station? : :P

    Is "Channel crossing" Westferry? (I mean, it is for all those French people...)
