One book is from TfL giving details of the services that will be running during the Games, how to get to the various venues, ticket prices and a guide to step free access while the other is from the Olympic Delivery Authority with details of the various sporting events and the venues. I’m sure these will be very useful to the station staff but not a lot of good for a TOp stuck up the front of a train and only making contact when we change ends, to the best of my knowledge there are no events at Epping or West Ruislip. As TOps rarely wear Hi-vis unless we are walking in and out of depots and sidings it’s unlikely we’ll be seen by the public in our special Olympic vestments and the badge, well, it’s a badge.
