So I rode the ‘38 yesterday. Today there was no train. Then this has just
appeared … no trains for another WEEK; what if it still doesn’t resume
after that! Did I just inadvertently manage to ride on the last day that
they were in service … ?

006 failed last week, 008 failed yesterday (one post suggests axle box
problems?). 007 is supposedly nearing the end of an overhaul. Another post
suggests service may resume on Monday.

As a side from this thread, I watched a video this evening on "the past"
which was interesting, reflecting my last trip there in 1966.

006 and 007 both out of service again yesterday, with suggestions that they
won't be returning to service before the official end date of 3rd Jan.

So it looks possible that 28/12/20 was their last day.

That link now appears dead so I don’t know if it was steam or the first
batch of tube stock.
I did find some of my own photos taken on that in its last year of
operation and what struck me was how much more of the original interior of
that stock survived with glass lampshades and filament bulbs for the
lighting, leather straphangers etc.
While the 1938 stock has been feted recently the excellent refurbishment
done for their Island role went much further and the interiors ended up
more like a spruced up version of the 59 /62 stock
rather than the ambience they had when in London.

Strange, it was working last night but not this morning! It was a
Railway Roundabout clip in, I recall, 1962 so very much in the steam
days. However, a search this morning cannot find that particular
episode, but many other episodes are on-line.

Ta, Somewhere I have collection of DVD’s with many of the Railway
Roundabout presentations on it,
though I am old enough to remember them being transmitted on the TV it
wasn’t till I purchased the DVD set I realised the production team had the
foresight to record a a good proportion of their material in colour , must
dig them out again and run through them.

Out of habit I take a look at the webcam each morning that looks at Ryde
Esplanade station at the time a train is due as on occasions as despite
the traffic reports saying there is no service and replacement buses being
there a service has run.

This morning the train is operating again.

On Saturday the Isle of Wight County Press published a lot of photos of
tube stock operation on the Island to commemorate the end of it today
Sunday.
