I was thinking the same about the old tube trains, I am pretty sure these old cars were in use in the early 1970's. I remember they had wooden slatted floors, and a particular dusty odour. I have in mind a certain seat fabric that I associate with London Transport, but it seems they used quite a few different ones. The fabric shown is the one I remember. The tube train picture is of a refurbished 1938 train car, funny how one forgets the details, the wide armrests, the rounded hanging supports, even the tops of the windows opening. Pleased I remembered the slatted flooring.Love the wood paneling. Of course, the seats have been refurbished. Do you think that those cars may have still been in use in the Tube as late as 1970? That was my first time in London, and there were still some very old trains on some of the lines.
Interesting that a few people appear to not be wearing masks.
I think longer than that. The Bakerloo line being their last haunt where I believe you could still occassionally see one well into the 1980s.I was thinking the same about the old tube trains, I am pretty sure these old cars were in use in the early 1970's.
