Default 1938 Stock on Uxbridge 100 and T Stock?

For those interested I have put some pictures of the 1938 stock at
Amersham when it called as part of the Uxbridge 100 tour. See

http://www.metroland.nildram.co.uk/a...ro/metmisc.htm


Also on the page (top photo) is a picture I have been sent of Amersham
in 1961. Can anyone confirm what type of train is in the picture? Am I
right in assuming it was T stock?

Many thanks

Matthew

Yes, it's T stock.

The book Steam to Silver, An illustrated history of London Transport Surface
Railway Rolling Stock by J Graeme Bruce, if you can get hold of a copy, has
a good description of T stock and its forerunner, MW stock.

Now, had they been going to have *that* train on today, I'd have gone!
I don't know what it is, I'm afraid - but I was near Amersham earlier
today and could possibly have gone on the tour, but am not enough
interested in 1938 stock to do so.

Thank you for posting the photographs.

Thanks Russell, I've seen the book in question on Ebay, but have always
lost out in the bidding!

As someone else on the thread has posted, if a T stock train had run
today that might have been interesting - are any preserved?

I don't believe any were preserved Matthew, which is a real shame.

Two motor coaches, 2758 and 2749, were converted during 1961 into a
double-unit sleet locomotive and were numbered ESL118A and ESL 119B and were
based at Neasden. I imagine they've long since been withdrawn but I don't
know for sure. Perhaps one of the 'Underground' readers of the newsgroup
might be able to help.

Good luck in your hunt for the book, it's an excellent resource. I bought
mine for the princely sum of 3 in 1975 !

I think I remember seeing these or something similar parked in the bay
platform at Rickmansworth on some winter mornings in the 1970s. At the
time I wrote to London Transport and they told me they were de icing
trains

Since my earlier post I've done a little more research.

I have ESL118A & B listed in my 1978 copy of London Underground Rolling
Stock, but they're not listed in my 1988 copy, so I presume they must have
been withdrawn and disposed of by then. There is a picture of them in the
bay platform at Rickmansworth in the 1978 book.

The Science Museum library has two copies available
http://www.sciencemuseum.org.uk/library/visitor.asp

Anyone is allowed to go in (it's free but you need to take some ID with
you). It's near South Kensington tube.
Walk up Exhibition road or the subway from the tube. Turn left just past
the Science museum. Follow the footpath in a straight line and it takes you
to the joint Imperial College / Science museum library.

The transport books are on level three near the windows.
