TfL has spent £600,000 advertising the (non-existent) night tube

Ah, the night tube. Remember when we were all full of hope and looking forward to being able get home from a night out without getting three night buses or splashing out on a price-surged Uber? Those were the days. The 24-hour weekend service was supposed to start on September 12 last year, but since then there's been a few, er, complications. Because of an ongoing dispute between the London Underground and the tube unions, the launch has been delayed until – well, your guess is as good as ours. But that hasn't stopped the folks at TfL splashing the cash on advertising for the as yet non-existent night tube service. How much, you ask? Oh, just a casual £600,000. Seems reasonable. At least we know all the money we spend topping up our Oyster cards is being spent wisely. Oh wait...

In other tube news, tube staff might get special seats that make them look busy.

And TfL is taking over suburban train services in south London.
