is there a size limit for carrying something on the Tube

Options
I want to transport two sides of a 6x4 garden shed on the train.

It's just a matter of 4 stops

The panel is 6 x 5 feet

    Probably not... especially in the rush hour.

    Then again years ago I took a mini door on the tube , wound the window down and hung it over my shoulder :)

    I did get some looks !

    Are you talking central London deep level tube, or something like suburban metropolitan line?

    The latter is less likely to raise an eyebrow, however central London deep level lines would be unwise simply due to the volume of people, escalators and narrow foot tunnels etc.

    It was actually about another train, but just thought it was easier to mention 'The London Underground'

    As it is, a friend with a transit van has offered to assist

    Though not easier for the people who gave up their time for nothing to give you advice about the wrong thing.

    No idea with restriction, but you are saying you want to 6 x 5 size mean a size of 2 number of door!

    I don't think you can get through.

    No, read it several times and still can't make head nor tail of it.

    For anyone in the future looking at this thread, for the London underground services:
    You must not bring with you anything that:
    1. is more than 2 metres long
    2. you are unable to carry yourself (including on stairs)
    3. is hazardous or inflammable
    4. is likely to cause injury or obstruct other customers or staff
    5. is likely to cause damage to buses, Underground trains or stations.

    Different conditions may exist for DLR, TfL Rail, Overground, Trams and Buses.

    As it is neither of the types of line that Lewishardwick mentions, I can only assume it is the Island Line on the Isle of Wight!

    It could be a Parry People Mover in Stourbridge!

    It's got worse since the Congestion Charge was introduced and tradesmen use the tube rather than drive their van.

    I'm often covered in dust from the dirty clothes of plasterers or painters.

    I've seem someone with a radiator and someone with a toilet. Both on the rush-hour Central Line tube.

    Nobody said a word.
