As an aside, how uncluttered the 1985 map is compared to the latest issue
Yes, it seems more cluttered, but that is because the last 40 years has legitimately seen a huge amount of new transport infrastructure in London (JLE, DLR, Tramlink, Heathrow T5,, Overground, Air Line, TfL Rail/soon Crossrail). I'm not going to do an exact count but there must be about 250 stations on the 1985 map. There are around 420 on the current map!
I wonder if they will show this on the tube map, with a gap at Hainault showing the need to change trains.
The two places on the current Tube Map where two terminating services meet, Wimbledon and Clapham Junction, show them in the same way as other interchanges, as two blobs, rather than the "gaps" (or capacitors), that used to shown at Hainault and Epping.
