Schoma diesels at Ruislip depot

Schoma diesels 2 and 8 at Ruislip depot 22nd June 2002. A fleet of diesel locomotives were acquired in the mid 1990s and used during the construction of the Jubilee Line extension. They have since been used alongside the battery locomotives on infrastructure work across the network.

1972 I TS at Hainault

1972 I TS at Hainault in January 2002. Withdrawn from service on the Northern Line cars of 72 TS have been stored at Hainault since 2001. At one time it was thought that they might be refurbished for further use on the Waterloo & City Line, allowing that line's fleet of 92 TS to join the rest on the Central Line. Most of the cars were removed early in 2004. By Summer 2005 only three now remain, DM 3511, trailer 4511 and UNDM 3411, all now severly vandalised (below).
