    By mid-2020? With all these delays at this point the 72 stocks will be running until they are 55 years old (60 if you count them being closely derived from the 67 stock design).

    Should I be shocked by the lack of inclusion of Bombardier? ;)

    I did read back in 2013 that they were set to reach their diamond anniversary!

    What inspiration do you think that took from the 1938 stock? I can't see any real similarity.

    The windows and doors look quite similar (bar the pocket) as both designs have a lack of rounded windows on them.

    Well, it would be pretty cool to see. I do hope there ends up being a full preserved set as it's a design that's been used in a lot of the trains London Underground have used over the years (67, 72Mk1, 72Mk2, 73, 83 (with single leaf doors and a more similar look to the D stock). All these trains at some point have run on the Victoria (67), Northern (72Mk1), Jubilee (72Mk2 and 83), Bakerloo (72Mk2), Piccadilly (73) and Central (67 test runs at the east end).

    Am I reading correctly that the contract will be released on the 31st May 2018 according to that document, including the chosen manufacturer?

    There are three tenderers left in the race: a consortium of Bombardier and Hitachi, and Alstom and Siemens. As most folk know, I think, Alstom and Siemens have announced their intention to merge their railway interests

    I was referring to signalling, not rolling stock.
