I am keeping the C Stock page updated with current info:I was told by a member of staff these are allocated to r/n 72,73,74 and 76
I was just about to post this! The sets in use were as follows:6 C Stock running Wimbledon-Edgware Rd today on the reduced 15min service, no S7s.
Not many, one was working Ealing Broadway-High Street Ken during the afternoon.How many C-stock trains where in operation during the recent strike?
Nice and unusual there, didn't see that when I was at Acton Town..Not many, one was working Ealing Broadway-High Street Ken during the afternoon.
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.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)?
No worries, that's understandable. The LTM website though is still advertising the C Stock Explorer!Thanks, just wanted to make sure that I haven't missed it.
Was 5726+5552+572005/05/2014:Unknown C stock 075
Indeed, this did see the use of more of the 8 C Stock trains available until the situation was resolved on 10 May.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.
Now in the public domain thanks to the BBC.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.
I did hear that the issue was not really related to S7 stock specifically, which possibly explains why C stock was withdrawn for a while when this happened...An investigation is under way after two of London Underground's (LU) new trains collided when the tracks moved.
The collision happened on the District Line between East Putney and Southfields stations and caused minor damage to carriages.
Manager Kevin Bootle said the two trains had been temporarily withdrawn from service during investigations.
A transport union said the incident highlighted "cuts to track inspections and maintenance."
'No issues found'
Mr Bootle, who is LU's District Line manager, said there were no injuries in the collision on 1 May, which was caused because of a "very slight movement of the tracks."
"The safety of our customers and staff is our top priority and we apologise for the limited disruption this may have caused," he said.
In a letter to staff he said: "LU engineers are now working to modify the track to ensure that this incident is not repeated.
"As a precaution other areas on the branch were checked with no other issues found."
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?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.
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.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?
