    I knew I should have broken into the Emergency Funds to fund a mini London bash after work yesterday, I would have got that pair in!

    Hopefully it'll produce somewhere on the afternoon/evening of 17th August, or during the morning of 18th August!

    If you drop a reminder nearer the time I'm sure one of us with the appropriate access can find out what it's doing for you!

    Thanks, I still need quite a few S7s (54 sets, so 27 pairs) and a fair number of S8s (36 sets, 18 pairs) so for the time being I've done well on my own. However, the opportunity to have some gen on the final two pairs won't go amiss!

    I might be cheeky and ask which diagram 21439/440 is on when I hunt for it.

    Saves festering at say South Kensington when it is on Hammersmith & City services

    Just to make sure I've understood correctly, T62 would be the train number that's shown on the front/rear end screens correct? I know the T doesn't show on those screens, I believe that it would read as 062. It might be bleeding obvious, but just wanted to check for future reference.

    Mind you, I haven't yet gone for the WTTs on LU...

    Correct, 062 would be shown on displays above the cab at each end and on the side displays on end cars at termini (while driver changes ends).

    Surely South Kensington is much more efficient for S7 chasing festers as you'd have the Circle diagrams coming through as well, plus it's an island platform... You can grab the Wimblewares and H&C diagrams at Edgware Road ( yes - the Cirlces again there... )

    Ah but you don't get the Edgware Road terminators at South Kensington. I think it was also just the fact I'd seen a winner heading south at West Brompton before I got to the LU side and was adament I wasn't missing it!

    South Kensington is nicer to fester at though, definitely.

    Agreed South Kensington has a few nice benches so you can sit and watch both sides for anything required. Got that S7 into my book, sadly due to it being quite crowded I bailed after one stop

    Yes, but there's more diagrams on the Circle than on the Wimblewares; if you travel up from Wimbledon and you aren't unfortunate enough to pass one in the covered sections, you can see what's on all but two of the Wimbleware diagrams just by getting from Wimbledon to Earl's Court.

    In spite of LUs previous claim that all S Stock trains had been delivered to London, this is now correct, as the last new train to be sent from Bombardier Derby works arrived in London this morning, namely 21547/48.

    This finally completes the delivery of 192 S Stock trains, the first being delivered for testing on 26 October 2009 !

    Excellent news :)

    I'm sure I'm probably not the only basher who has been waiting for 21547/548 to arrive in London and to enter service

    There are still a bunch returned (or due to be) to Derby, right? Is there any indication of when all 192 will be in London for good?

    I would think that a lot of (if not all) would have to have been converted by the time that SMA2 (Paddington /Finchley Road - Euston Square - I think, the diagram that I have isn't the clearest) goes live with the new signalling which best case is ~July 2018. They definitely all have to be done by the time SMA3 (Kings Cross - Stepney Green/Monument) comes around, which is the first migration area that has a stretch of district 'mainline' - best case scenario ~October 2018, worst case ~April 2019

    Indeed you aren't; it's the only S that I haven't had for haulage...

    Based on the rest of the fleet, it'll be about a week before it's actually in service.

    21547/48 started passenger service from Upminster depot as T117 last night, so is on District Line T51 this morning.

    No doubt Peter will be making a bee-line to intercept it as I type ;) (I will leave it until Friday to try and intercept)

    What dammage internally was done to the unit involved in Parsons Green? I assume it will go back to Darby for repairs?

    Not an awful lot by the looks of photos. May well only be a depot job.

    Simply cosmetic damage, something a depot can deal with easily.

    Afraid not... my next opportunities will be Thursday evening or Saturday morning, and in neither instance will I have time to cover all diagrams...
