OLYMPICS JAM

On both ends of the Javelin train, a high-speed rail between Olympic Park and the middle of London, it's pretty much a madhouse Friday morning ahead of one of the London Olympics' busiest days.

Signs in front of Olympic Park say that "over 200,000 spectators and accredited workforce are expected each day." People are pouring off the trains at rush hour and the number of volunteers appears to have doubled. They're waving oversized pink foam fingers — styled in the official color of the Olympics — to point crowds in the right direction.

At the other end, at St. Pancras station in the center of London, lines of hundreds of people are amassing to head to the Olympics area.
