They're being converted into sidings to stable eight S7 trains, needed
because the number of such sidings was reduced when these trains replaced
the shorter C stock. They won't be used as running lines.
Where have these eight trains been living for the last six years, then?
IIRC "in the wrong place" in the form of being parked in less
convenient places outwith traffic hours. Siding space has been lost at
Wembley Park because S stock is too long. That accounts for 4 or 5
trains and until recently there was at least one away at any one time
I think some were also lost at Triangle sidings
Yes, that definitely looks a bit less crowded now.
Too long for the sheds until alterations made ?
Google turns up some reference to Lillie Bridge now being used for
stabling S stock.
