Can anyone help me and tell me if 6504/6525/6590 (C69/C77 stock) are still in service please?

Also if anyone has the info of those tube carriages involved in the July 7th 2005 incident i would appreciate that. Is there a PDF report document listing them online anywhere?

Thanks in advance people.

Yes, those three units (which are all C69 stock) are still in service:
5504-6504 was running with 6514-5514 and 6732-5732 today as train 235
5590-6590 was running with 6511-5511 and 6556-5556 today as train 232
I didn't see 5525-6525 today, but the only unit withdrawn so far is 5595 which is at Acton Works.

The C stock trailers damaged on 7/7 were 6505 and 6713, they were scrapped and replaced with new cars 6606 and 6734 (often called 'C08 stock'). Cars 5505 and 5713 were renumbered to 5606 and 5734 to match the trailers.

The originally numbered unit 5606-6606 was scrapped in the mid-90s having been fitted with trial braking equipment and used as a pattern for the early-90s refurbishment.
Unit 5595-6595 has been at Acton works for some time now.

I've noticed that car 5525 has D Stock flooring, like the C08 cars do. Is there a particular reason for this, as far as I'm aware it hasn't been rebuilt or anything like that?
