It's also the case at Redbridge too.

That was the last A stock in normal operation today. If you now want to ride on an A stock you now have to buy a £40 ticket for its farewell tour on Saturday but I think its sold out.

Boo...

One imagines that (for £40) you'd be able to ride the one remaining one every now and again, doing heritage runs like Sarah Siddons.

It would tickle me to learn what's the ratio of straight:curvy platforms there

Quite possibly but I imagine once the met gets its signal upgrade even the heritage runs will go since I noticed the jubilee line no longer has physical signals since the moving block system was put in place and I can't imagine they could justify upgrading the heritage trains to operate with such as system.

It would make good business sence for the Epping-Ongar heritage railway to restore the electrification on their line and run LU heritage days, given that is the only heritage line to actually use a former LU route. Since they are also entirely above ground, they could run any kind of stock, too.

Just stumbled accross this, so to speak. I think there is a case for PSDs at some of the major interchange stations. I used to use Canning Town every day and the Beckton/Woolwich branch DLR platforms there can get frighteningly crowded at rush hour as more people come in from the Junbilee line and have to wait for their specific train, whilst others are trying to get on one that's already in. A few times I've been at the front of the train as they come into Canning station (heading into the city) in the morning crush, and it's amazing that more people don't wind up on the track. This was back around 2008/2009, so not sure if it's better now, but back then it seemed that something was desperately needed.

The EOR would have to use the style of platforms that the Airport-Pallini section of the Athens Metro does: i.e. one section for subsurface and another for tube. This will be hard since they've also got BR stock too.
