I still miss the old "Standard stock" on the Central in the 1950s.
The next "station", if you can call it a station, will be Castlebar Park which was a nice place until 1935. Then, it was destroyed by the mutant "planners" who couldn't even plan Christmas if it were on a different day every year. These people are out to make YOUR life Hell, because they are incapable of logical thinking. They might have "planning degrees", but couldn't change a light bulb.
i do remember C stock - before changes the seatings was different from now the emergency alarms or brake handles was found on poles but after refurishment - they have pull down handles on walls i had nearly pulled it at Amsterdam Metro due my mum got trapped in doors i had to locate emergency alarm handle its was next to doors but higher level due i am in wheelchair the train driver reopened doors again after long wait - they should have safety sensors on new trains because older trains are bit dangerous
Well with the first S7s now being delivered, who here is going to miss the old rattlers? The old washing machine motors, the announcements what deafen you when you stand right by the speaker, the flickering lights and the bouncy seats? I know there vandalized stupidly to much, but I'm sure some people are going to miss them? Surely. The S Stocks are great yeah, but these trains have allways been here, and I'm going to miss the shaking and the brakes what throw you off your feet, aren't you? So leave your thoughts below, will you be sad? Or will you be happy to see the end of them and say hello to the brand new, S Stocks
I like the "washing machine motors" comment, the C stock motors used to whine, scream and vibrate much more prior to refrubishment. The flickering light thing has been like that sice they changed the lighting electronics several year's back, which cause those strange effects.
Who remembers the C stock with the transverse seats?
Yes. With the '77s having the extra blue panel heaters by the doors, quite pleasent to lean against in the winter! The illuminated adverts overhead lacking any adverts and gradually falling into disrepair! The different coloured roofs too, of black, white, silver.
