What I am after is the make up of the two Central Line RAT stock . I guess they were converted from either 1959 & 1962 stock .

At this stage I am Not interested in times , just what the trains are . Do they carry their previous stock numbers , or were they renumbered into London Underground’s Service stock series ?

From a passing southbound Met Main Line service , I note one was right over the back at Neasden Depot , yesterday 07th-Septembe-2021 , but which one ?

Thanks in Advance

I saw the 5 car train at Ruislip depot either Monday or Tuesday this week, so unless it was moved overnight on Monday then I’d take it that the train you saw at Neasden was the 8 car one.

I took the train from Princes Risborough to Marylebone on Tuesday and I can confirm the 5 car RAT was out on that side of the depot, beside the Central running lines if that helps

Having been to the depot this afternoon, I could only see 3 cars, not sure if the other 5 are in the depot for work, or elsewhere.

When did the 62 stock get converted into a RAT train?
The Central had a Sandite car 9459 while the 1962 Stock was still in passenger service.
The 8-car train continued running on Sandite duties after the other passenger trains were withdrawn.
The 5-car westend unit was converted in 2010.
