LONDON (AP) — It’s a mystery tour, but it’s hardly magical.

More than nine miles (14 kilometers) from the striped crosswalk made famous by the Beatles album “Abbey Road,” this drab transit station in east London keeps drawing confused fans of the Fab Four into unwanted jaunts through a gritty, industrial area just south of London’s Olympic Stadium.

Abbey Road Station has no relation to the Beatles’ Abbey Road Studios, the birthplace of the eponymous album and a London tourist landmark. The glass-and-metal station is wedged among a train depot, warehouses, and gloomy public housing projects, a world away from the leafy, suburban street pictured on the album’s cover.
