Does it give off the good old "tuht hsssss" sound when it slows down?
Well yes, it does. Everytime we will get to hear "tuht hssss". Nice sound actually, ask Stoopid he gets to listen to that too.

The Bakerloo Line is, techinically, you could say MkIII stock as it has a combination of MkI and MkII stock. MkII for DMs, NDMs, some TCs, and MkI for other TCs.

Here we go agian. If you lads want to be historically accurate use the proper nonclemature when describing underground rolling stock. In all the days of LPTB/LTB/LTE the word TUBE was never attached to the name of any build. All tube stock was referred to just by it's year. I.E. 1938 stock, 1956 stock 1962 stock etc. Surface stock was only known by its letter. Now I see someone has decided to alter the descriptions in individual cars by calling trailers 'TC'. That is NOT correct. Official designations are DM, NDM, UNDM. CT, and 'T' There is and never were any such cars known as 'TC' That is a mainline tag. So please, lets get it right.

Why does it run ok then? Why is London not grinding to a halt. Clearly they know something and i think your post was slightly over-exagerated.

It only runs well because of the dedication of the staff on the gorund. Those upstairs in the office probably never use a bus.

I wish to submit a complaint... WHERE is the 1938TS on the voting list?
I offer my bit with a contented smile on my face. There can't be too many around today who have experienced driving one of these?

In my very early capacity as relief signalman, riding in the cab on one’s spare days gave one the drivers angle on problems re signalling and tailing from one red to another for a whole hour. Naturally one eventually gets a driving lesson that was not only interesting, but you learnt another’s angle on delays and communication. Not only that, you became familiar with train staff that when you wanted a quick turnaround you knew who you could rely on to do it.
Since all my tube time was spent with all the 1938 stock that was both reliable and safe and all RED.

Never mind the 1938 stock. What about the 1936 and 1960 stock which populated the Central Line during my school days!
