Thanks for the comments everyone, I appreciate it. I think I should change the Northern line's interior pic to show the new moquette though...

What looks so outdated about it?

The design.
The interior of 96 stock and even of the refurbished 73 stock look more modern.

In this point that I can't really answer.
Younger don't need better, the interior of the 92 stocks is the worst of tube train.

What a brilliant post, I am Puking.

I heard that the colour coding of the interior was being phased out, so that all sub surface trains would look the same. And I thought that might even include the new overground trains that seem very similar (identical?) to the new stock for the sub surface lines??

I think the 92TS is the best of the lot! Big windows make it feel more spacious, two of the seats are set back giving it more leg room and more standing space, and the handrails by the doors 'stick out' from the wall allowing one to wrap their arm around it while reading the newspaper! But the seats are too uncomfortable, and because of that I prefer the 72/67TS... I don't really like the 09TS interior because the windows are too small, but the Victoria line is entirely in tunnel so there isn't much to see.

Thank you, I think the SSLs will get one interior for the District/Circle/H&C since they will be the same legnth (7 cars) and the same seating arrangements, but the 8 car Met trains will probably end up as a dedicated sub-fleet with a different interior design. It doesn't really make much difference though, as the Circle, H&C and District from Edgware Road to Wimbledon already are the same inside. Tubeman will probably know more.

Maida Vale is one of my favs too, it also has a unique mosaiced roundel on the stairwell, the station is currently being refurbished.

haha wow that mosaic's amazing, I love all the quirks of the tube that you've highlighted I had literally never noticed that the colour scheme inside matched the line colour in all my years of using the tube! I cant believe I missed it!

SVP, how long's a long car, plus what's the length of a short one? (I don't recall the length of a 1973 Pic-line car being longer....) (Too bad yer shots aren't labelled!)

Bakerloo/Victoria 1972/1967 Stock are 16m long for driving cars, and 15m for trailers.

Piccadilly 1973 Stock are 17.7m long, so are 1995/1996 Northern/Jubilee line trains

So not much difference really. Tubeman told me the Central line's 1992 Stock was built with the shorter type of cars because of tight curves on that line.

And i'm going to label the photos soon.

Yeah Id agree here.
It looks somewhat dated. Nevertheless its good to see new trains on the line.

Is it the moquette? (the seat pattern) it's more 'traditional' than the 95/73TS.
