A bit cold, but elegant.

Seems a space module...

Due to Photobucket f*cking up, most images won't be visibile in my old posts. If you need anything specific, please write me.

It looks like they're covering over windows between the bendybit (technical term) and the doors..

People, the big (huge!!) inovation in that last design is that it features Gangway connection between cars, which has never been used in any tube stock!
This could mean a totally different design regarding both the length of each carriage and the arrangement of the doors.

I thought the carriages of that concept were shorter the idea was there needed to be less bogies so less unpowered weight?

Shared bogies under the rotational gangway connector, possibly.

I still have the RAW file and with better versions of Photoshop I can upgrade the quality of this photo to the right tone and lighting.

Technical term, articulation, with the rubbery part called the bellows.

As to why the window is covered there, I would say there is a lot of structure behind the panel, so a window is not practical.

Now clearly this is a concept design, any idea which company?

I should point out that a number of tube and metro enthusiasts have recently filed copyright complaints in respect of how a flickr user, metrosdomundo, and its subsiduary accounts, metrosdomundo2, metrosdomundo3 and metrosdomundo4 obtained its images for its photostream.

This crackdown began after:
  • I took down one infringing image for not adhering to the terms of the Creative Commons licence;
  • I noticed how the user obtained over 22,000 images in just over year, and;
  • I tipped off the Squarewheels website about the user copying about 65 of their images to their main account. I noticed it because the infringing images had the Squarewheels watermark!
So far I have identified and alerted seven people or websites, whose images had been copied from, either because of the watermark or because of the frequency of visiting their site, hence becoming familiar with the image's composition.

This is why watermarking works for wonders.

Looking through their images you can spot quite a few of them. Seems they've even got the Wikipedia imagines too! Noticed quite a lot of Bowroaduk's images too

Love the train, but really, really hate the circular front. It just looks ugly.

Please don't...
