After the many comments on my Favourite DMU,EMU or DEMU post, I decided to create a favourite LUL stock post.
--- old post above --- --- new post below ---
My favourites are S stock and 1995 stock
The older district line trains where if you are lucky you can still get seats facing (or back) to the direction of travel, rather than sideways seating. Are the new walkthrough trains on the met line this or are they like the electric overground stock which is all side ways seating. ?
There like the Overground trains.
S8 Metropolitan:There like the Overground trains.
They're not. The trains in the Met to Uxbridge etc do have a mix of seating, some facing / back to direction of travel and some sideways.
As for favourite, anything I can actually get on, but the old Met line stock proved their worth for over 50 years.
Oh sorry! Ive only been on the S7 stock and until now I didn't know the difference.
Oh sorry! Ive only been on the S7 stock and until now I didn't know the difference. And sorry for my bad grammar.
Of the stocks currently in service, my favourites are the 1992 and D stock.
I do miss the 1967 stock, as these were the first tube stock I ever rode on, and I loved the sound of the motors on this.
1938 Tube Stock for me. Loved CO/CP as well and I miss the A stock especially bouncing over the crossings at Neasden.
What was up with the O and P stock before conversion to CO/CP? Granted the metadynes where heavy, but regenerative braking and continuously variable control, that must have been smooth...
