A five-year-old train fanatic has become an internet sensation after he proved he had memorised the entire transport map of London.
Sol De Glanville has always had a fascination with rail travel, pointing out where he was on the line at every stop on a journey.
Since he got a TfL map for Christmas, though, he studied it every day until he could tell his stunned parents how to get from any one point to another from memory.
‘Oh my gosh you really do know it!’ exclaimed mum, Joy Green, after her super-son asked her to test him on his new talent.
“He’s a very normal little boy,” said the 39-year-old mother of two of Choumert Road, Peckham. “He loves trains – he doesn’t think it’s that unusual.”
After a video they posted online for Sol’s grandma to see his novel skill went viral on Facebook, TfL offered Sol the chance to sit in the driver’s cab on the Jubilee Line.
“He really enjoyed it,” said Joy, who added son, Sol, would quite like to be a tube driver when he grows up.
