Transport for London bosses were mocked by passengers who spotted an apparent error in their Elizabeth Line markings.

An eagle-eyed Subway commuter tweeted a photo of the latest addition to a poster as they rode out of Mile End Station on the Central Line. MyLondon reports.

The photo shows several new purple labels next to the various stations on the Elizabeth Line.

However, unlike the other Tube lines that only bear their names (Circle, Metropolitan and Hammersmith & City), TfL has opted for the ‘Elizabeth Line’ and not just ‘Elizabeth’.

The choice of wording prompted the passenger to express his disappointment, writing: “Very disappointed with TfL this morning.

“The decision to call it ‘Elizabeth Lineage’ instead of ‘Elizabeth’ is a blatant mistake.”

Then they added: “Should we call it the Elizabeth line now?

“‘Change here for Central, Circle and Elizabeth lines.'”

TfL’s “bug” caused an uproar on social media, with one person responding: “Surely it should have a capital L too?”

Another explained: “The [London Underground] The convention is that ‘line’ is always lowercase!”

A third commented: “To be honest most Londoners will still call it Crossrail, [it’s] has been called Crossrail for 15 years and is still called that by everyone in the rail industry today.”

Many people drew comparisons to the addition of Battersea Power Station to the Northern Line. One pointed out: “TfL seems to be making this a habit. See Battersea Power Station.”

However, one social media user tweeted: “It looks strange. But (thanks to Boris) it’s called ‘Elizabeth Line’ instead of Crossrail. If it just says ‘Elizabeth’ it would be the Elizabeth line on the London Underground, which is also wrong.”

And MyLondon’s transport correspondent Callum Marius said: “While technically correct because the Elizabeth line is a new ‘mode’ (like Overground or DLR) and not an underground line, it is incomprehensible to the average passenger .”

The first tweet garnered 957 likes. The Elizabeth line is scheduled to open in the next few weeks, with no specific date given beyond the first half of 2022.
