I for one would love to be able to ride on an old tube train on a
preserved line -


but but I thought you drove 73 stock on the Piccadilly Line? Isn't that
the same thing? ;-)


Well, if someone was to buy us some new ones, I would be happy to drive
them.

Errr, 73ts haven't had TEPs for many years now. Replaced 'em all with a

What are TEPs and CDUs?

I do believe, that there is not one preserved line in
the country, that uses electrified lines.


Volks in Brighton.


That's already been mentioned, and argued about. However, there is teh
Crich tramway Museum which is electrified...

.... with overhead wires, not third rail And it isn't a preserved
line, it's in a former quarry. There are lots of museums with overhead
wires -tramway and trolleybus.

Sorry about my ignorance but what is a "Real Man" and what's so
different to driving A60 stock to driving 38 or 62 stock with the flag
up? You can also help my education by telling me what a TEP and a CDU
is? Thank you.

TEP = Train Equipment Panel
CDU = Cab Display Unit

Both perform essentially the same task, allow the driver to switch off
various bits of train equipment, but the TEP gave a much greater degree of
control. It had a button to cut out the rheo for one thing.

They still do, if you know where to find it, although it's not on the
CDU...

A60 stock used on the top of the met, where I doubt train stopping
positions were that critical. 38 stock on the Northern line required a
drivers cab stop over the diamond, with both the front and back of the
train in the tunnel, (don't nit pick about Highgate.). So I ask a
second time, what's this stuff about real men and the A 60 stock?

That's why my vehicle's the Piccadilly Line -
It's the size of a county and it comes every two and a half minutes
