    186 didn’t form part of the AM service today, if I remember I’ll check back in a few hours for the PM service.

    Is it for sight or for haulage? If it's for haulage, wouldn't you be better off waiting at one of the island platform layout stations in the central London part of the line, roughly at the half way mark between the ends of the line?

    Any of the island platform layout stations in the central area would do, but personally if it was me I'd use the London end of White City if it's just for sight. Open air, but well sheltered and everything will go through there. Some trains terminate and head back, hence my recommending the London end of the platforms.

    Not sure that would help Tony Mason’s request to find Piccadilly 1973 Stock 186.

    Oops, sorry - you're right; for some reason I was thinking of the Central!!!:oops::oops::oops::oops::oops:

    Err... @Tony Mason For Piccadilly for sight, if not wanting to be in the tunnels, try Baron's Court - nearest open air bit to the middle, less crowded than Hammersmith so a good chance of sitting down. Still has high back solid benches, so fairly well sheltered from the wind.

    186 appears to be on train 233 today 4 March. This stables at Cockfosters at 20:58, assuming it is not reformed.

    Sorry this is late, but 96016 is out today. It started on train 365, but now reformed to 356 which stables at Stratford at 01:13 unless further reformed. No sign of the other two today though...

    I understand that the project to restore 91341 to service is making progress, but still a fair way from finished - still expected to be later this year though.

    Well this thread was a surprise find, I didn't see it until today somehow.

    What's going on with 91341? I just checked my notes and I see I have it down as required for both sight and haulage.

    I am close to finishing my S7s so I might well have to ask for a cheeky bit of gen when I next visit London. Going to be a fair while yet, as there is Manchester this week and a proposed visit to West Yorkshire in the coming weeks too.

    Hello all does anybody know if Bakerloo Line 3246 is currently operational at the moment its my last one for haulage. I've tried to find it on several occasions is it just a case of me being unlucky or is it currently out of use? Any information on recent sightings would be a great help. I will be back in London 15th of June so if its serviceable I will have another try! Thanks in advance.

    Thank you. Perhaps I should concentrate on snapping my few required 1973 Stock DMs first, then...

    Obviously now the weather has finally warmed up, I am looking at things that might require a bit of standing around to get...

    3246 is working Train 236 today...

    As far as I understand 91341 had some specific prototype modifications some years ago, that were not applied across the rest of the fleet, but were not reversed on 91341 making it somewhat non standard. At some point its cab was decommissioned and some of the equipment removed, so 91341 was relegated to use only as an inside unit (as if it were a non cab unit). This was possible as the 1992 stock fleet had 5 more cab cars than are needed for 85 eight car trains (each of which are 4 two car units), so 5 of the trains would usually have one (or very occasionally two) inner cabs. At some point other equipment was removed and 91341 became a 'long term stopped' unit (possibly as long ago as 2016).

    The timetable will change next year to allow for trains to be taken out of service for fitting AC traction and this timetable will require more leading cabs to be available. Hence the project to refit the missing equipment and return 91341 to service with an active cab. Some of the missing components are presumably 1990s electronics that now have to be manufactured as one off bespoke items and hence have (very) long lead times.

    96108 is working train 356 so far to day. It is on its way to Stratford and assuming it isn't reformed (in other words it sticks to its diagram) it will then form the 1443 departure to Stanmore, 1548 back to Stratford, 1651 to Wembley Park, 1755 to Stratford, 1846 to Stanmore, 1955 to Stratford, 2055 to Stanmore, 2200 to Stratford, 2304 to Stanmore then empty to Neasden and stable...
