Oh, excellent! Not only is it considerably closer, *I* might find 
something interesting there, as well as something for my teacher.

Moot point... as I was out going to the Soane Museum (*really* great 
suggestion, folks!) they announced that a section of the Picadilly line 
is closed due to an accident ("person under the train"). That section 
includes the Hounslow Central station. It might be re-opened now, but 
with this closer place I think I'll avoid the longer trip. (Plus, I 
think the Oyster Card I got is limited to zones 1 & 2... I'd have to put 
more into it to go to zone 4.)
