I saw today an 1972/1973 TS inside the GG Depot. Somebody know why?

It could only be the Track Recording Vehicle (description on this page). Since the introduction of TBTC signalling it can only cover the Northern line after close of traffic. Normally it would return to Northfields Depot before start of traffic the following day, so it is possible that this did not happen for some reason, and it has been outstabled at Golders until a return path can be arranged.

Yes. I had lucky today and my northbound train was stopped before GG station and I could saw the train inside. Friday I saw just first carriage due to an another 95 train near and that's why I tought that is a 72 or 73 train.

Somewhere, not in London
Point of note, the TRV isn't formed of 1972TS, the AIT is, but that isn't yet functional.

The TRV is 1960TS DMs and a 1973TS Trailer.
