What's really unfortunate, is that when the A stock IS replaced, the new stock will not feature any of the comfortable features that A stock has. The new SSL trains will be standard across all SSLs, so you get the same stock whether you are doing HSK-OLY or ALD-AME. It's a great shame.
Sadly, today railways are run cheaply for what they hope the maximum cost. By using one size fits all its cheaper since there is not numerous designs to be comissed etc coting more and delaying deliverly. So companies use one size fits all in thsi day and age, not what the customer wants :roll:
Not only would that stock be unsuitable for the met but it could not pissibly operate on the circle without as many doors as C stock and without longitudinal seats throughout like C stock! The needs of the Metropilitan line and the Circle line are as alike as Chalk and Guildford.
I voted for the A-Stock. I only really travel on this between Liverpool Street and Euston/Kings Cross but its always a comfortable journey. In the morning as well (Which is when I most use it) Its not that busy so you always get a seat.
