Look through the window as you travel between Tottenham Court Road and Holborn on the Central Line and you’ll see a station – where no passengers have alighted since 1932. This used to be British Museum station.
There are about 40 abandoned or relocated stations on the Underground network along its entire track.
The plan is to recapture the station’s history and open it up to tourists in the first phase
The presentation ended.
Six months after the renovated British Museum station was opened the company filed bankruptcy.
Initially the tourist came but soon there were reports of weird happenings.
A mummy from the nearby museum is held responsible. Dressed in an impressive loincloth and head-dress, an Egyptian Princess would wail and scream in the tunnels.
London Underground has always denied the existence of the tunnel from the station to the Egyptian Room of the British Museum.
