I went past Northumberland Park depo and I saw a 67stock train in one of the sheds, what is it still doing there? Will it be preserved? or will it go to Isle of Wight?

It was being used to move the new '09 Stock around the depot upon delivery.
Now that Train20 has just returned from Derby the '67 is now redundant and will be moving to Acton Works soon.

It will certainly not be going to the Isle of Wight! One Driving Motor has already been preserved by the LTM, I believe the unit 'driven' by the Queen when she opened the line.

I believe, if the whole 8-car set is still there (Units 60+61), 4 cars are to go into storage at Eastleigh or Acton Works, and the other 4 cars are to be used by the Emergency Response Unit for training.
