    5545 + 5524 + 5529 was out on the Wimbleware on Sunday evening. Incredibly another C stock train was following a few minutes behind

    There were C stock trains on these workings Easter Sunday. 74 was diverted to Mansion House due to a signal failure at Earls Court, possibly the last ever C stock working on that section?

    I was just about to post this! The sets in use were as follows:

    71: 5733-5550-5594
    72: 5522-5555-5549
    73: 5726-5552-5720
    74: 5721-5531-5578
    75: 5533-5517-5592
    76: 5712-5551-5516

    Spent the day filming & photographing them, so I was pleased to see a healthy complement out - including the elusive (for me) 5555.

    How long will it be before tickets go on sale for the C stock tour on 29th June (I do check the LTM website every day)?

    It's still around two months away; going off previous trips I doubt they'll be on sale before the end of May. It will certainly be announced in several places a couple of days beforehand though.

    No worries, that's understandable. The LTM website though is still advertising the C Stock Explorer!
    --- old post above --- --- new post below ---
    Seven sets working the Edgware Road-Wimbledon trains today, supplemented by one S7. I'm told that there was an incident with the S7s last week, triggering the use of more C stock, but I don't know (or want to know) details. Either way, it gives eight sets for eight workings!

    70: 5578-5531-5721
    71: 5516-5551-5712
    72: 5733-5550-5594
    73: 5549-5555-5522
    74: 5726-5552-5720
    76: 5529-5524-5545
    77: 5592-5517-5533

    Train 75 was worked by the S7. 5596+5560+5727 (or 'the railtour train') was the one not in service, and from my observations hasn't been in service for at least a week now.

    HTH.

    Now in the public domain thanks to the BBC.

    I did hear that the issue was not really related to S7 stock specifically, which possibly explains why C stock was withdrawn for a while when this happened...

    I think C and S Stocks are wider than D Stock, I remember one day in September 2012 they had another clearance issue in the same area which resulted in C Stocks being diverted to the Ealing Broadway/Richmond services with D Stocks still running, although on a lower frequency as minor delays were advertised (quite a surprise when one turned up at Barons Court westbound with another nearby in the opposite direction!)

    I'm surprised this hasn't happened before tbh with any other trains. There are plenty of other sections of railway where if you pass a train it looks like it's just missing you. In fact, leaving Kings Cross on a HST a MK4 was pulling in next to us and was so close another 1inch and they would have likely been touching

    The engineers will be getting a serious bollocking though for it!

    East Putney junction seems to have a problem with track slipping, its happened a couple of times now in the last year or so. I hope they fix it properly, if it happens again once the d stock are gone, there'll be no service on the Wimbledon branch

    Two C Stock trains now scheduled for removal to Neasden/Northwood next week, and four the week after. District trains 72, 73 and 76 should be S Stock from 3rd June.

    I thought train 74 was also going to S stock, or is it going to be a C stock hold-out for a bit yet?

    You're quite right - T74 to swap over to S Stock during the traffic day on 3rd June, although it will run as T161 for the remainder of the day once the swap has occurred.

    So I reckon 13:08 Wimbledon-Edgware Road 13:39 will be the last C-Stock then on 03rd June.

    On the Remaining C Stock Diagrams topic it says tickets are on sale for the 29th of June tour but when I click the link it says they will be on sale from Monday, which one is right? The Remaining C Stock Diagrams topic also says the tour starts from Hammersmith but the LTM website says it starts from Moorgate again which one is right?
