A jubilee train I was on this morning had had an interior refresh. New
flooring, grey grab handles and a deep clean by the looks of it. Is this
going to be done to the whole fleet as a mid life refurb or is it just on
an ad hoc basis?

The Jubilee line runs 96 stock, not 95 stock. Refurbishment of 96 stock

started this year.

Yes, you're quite right, I should have answered the question Spud meant to
ask, not the one he did ask. But I wonder why they refurbished the newer 95
stock before the older 96 stock?

Yes, my mistake. I always get the 2 stocks confused. Anyway, it was definately
a jubilee line train and it looked much nicer inside and not just because it
was cleaner.
