Anagrammed Tube Map
(via As Above, Kevan)

With due acknowledgment to the creator of the London (Non Old?) map, I tried my hand at the local Lilydale line, a section of railway much traversed in childhood and in dreams.

The forecast for sidecar month is an echidna storm.

not Monash Direct?

Matron Chides as Medics Thrown for not directing them to Modern Switch instead.

Two reflection on the London Underground map: what a strange & haunting world it conjures up; somebody must have spent many, many hours composing it. Hmm...

I suspect many Australian train stations of being anagrams already.

Yes, there's a kind of urban narrative there.

Actually some of the names read like good blog names. "Swearword & Ethanol" "Dully Hubris"...

You mean all the -gongs and - nongs, Kevan? ;)
Interesting that "Mooroolbark" didn't yield as many choices as the prosaic, English "Ringwood East"
I had to discard "Gradient Woos" and "Sweating Odor" before settling on "Organised Tow"...

Craigieburn/ Broadmeadows Line:

Nice Air Burg
Dead Swab Moor
Can A.J.A.*
Long Rye
a.k.a. Pork
A love space
Homer's tart
Be reveling
Eden's son
No poems done
A lost cave
Kong in nest
Let hormone burn*

Eddie should have said: "We have a saying in Dead Swab Moor..."
You always have to go to the end of the line to get the nice air, but I think "a.k.a Pork" is my fave.
