BBC» (British Broadcasting Corporation - home page) report on Sunday morning that travellers that are about to board TFL (Transport for London) services are being requested to put on a face mask.

Its their trains,and its their policy.

Does this apply to TfL» (Transport for London - about)-Crossrail trains from Reading? I think that we mentioned this around "Freedom Day" on July 19th and I got the impression that it did. But a friend who commutes to Paddington (albeit by GWR (Great Western Railway)) thought not. (He reports that "a lot of people" are not masked on the Tube.)
