One thing someone remarked on was shifting people out of Ashburton Grove - The Piccadilly Line runs 28tph with each having about an 1,100 capacity, and that's E/B and W/B (though some do tip out at Arnos) the Victoria runs over 30tph at a capacity of nearly 1,300 each, not forgetting network trains, buses and those walking. When we had full houses at Highbury before the seats came in, people were shifted quite quickly, and that was back in the days when everyone stayed right to the end. Arsenal tube is a slightly further walk now, but can still cope admirably considering the size of it.
