    This saloon is still (sort of) in service and now in EWS livery but normally resides these days at Motherwell depot...

    Now owned by London Underground (Railway Magazine Aug 10) - you would have thought it would be cheaper to convert old tube stock but at least it is still in use.

    Good point Simon. The 'old tube stock' conversion would be much more practical. This is probably for use on the surface lines of the MET as it can't be used much place else.

    Incidentally has anyone spotted the number of this vehicle etched onto the glass of one of it's windows. See if you can find it. It's an unusual touch, but is it unique?

    There are some photos by Carl Watson on fotopic.net of the conversion work underway at Eastleigh
