Right into my neatly sprung trap.


I thought of a non-Goblin LT/LRT/LUL/LU/etc diesel public timetabled
passenger diesel operation before I answered )


I admit this time to be posting exceptions to prove rules in full

IIRC there have been diesel trains run as part of Steam On The Met.


And there's generally a 20 at the other end of that awful coloured TC
unit from Sarah Siddons, but does that count as timetabled?

Nope, not that.

As i clicked send I realised thats too open to mis-interpretation.

I mean a normal scheduled train, not a heritage event or open day
working or crankex.

A bog standard normal service.

And since London Transport and its successors have existed?

I am struggling, but still whirring of the brian.

On Steam on the Met 1993 (IIRC) the green 121 Bubblecar was used as
Chesham Branch Shuttle. But that doesn't count.

Otherwise, there was this:

Or are we talking DEL 120?

I can hear a strange whirring on the wind.

I am at the extremes of exceptions to prove rules here but what I
refer to was definitely not a heritage/crankex working, but a normal
timetabled train, but booked to be diesel operated.

Hint: technically it could be done today the vehicles of the right
types are still about )

Well, the only place I can think where diesel trains currently run in
passenger service on LT lines is Harrow to Amersham. Have there been
occasions where additional services have been run by/on behalf of LT/
TfL, eg during works?
