4) Looks like it is entering Neasden depot from the northbound B'loo. The suspension bridge is the North Circular Rd. 6) Judging from the Central Line maps in the car, it could be either Hainault or Ruislip depot.
Only time will tell if I will ever take a journey on a 72, 73, 92, or D stock.
Pic 4 - definitely south end of Neasden depot - train coming back into depot from shunting neck.
Pic 5 - same place as Pic 3
Pic 6 - a 1967 stock DM for Central line service (Hainault - Woodford). Lack of adverts and general condition suggests it's brand new, except the floor doesn't look quite as sparkling as one might expect. Clearly in depot - presumably Hainault. However might be Ruislip if new 67 stock was initially delivered there - I've no first-hand knowledge on that point.
Pic 7 - The WF cabin code should answer this, but its too late tonight to start searching to check that. It clearly show two tracks of a quadruple section paired by direction, the Q23 stock is of course District line, and from the curvature and the backs of houses I would surmise it's between Baron's Court and Hammersmith W/B.
Pic 8 - The one-time 3-aspect signal suggests the Met., the P stock on a two track line suggests most probably the Uxbridge branch. I'd hazard a guess at looking westbound towards Hillingdon. The P stock would date this as very early 60s. If it is Hillingdon, then the 'new' A40 underbridge has totally changed the scene here.
Look forward to seeing what others have to say about these very interesting pictures.
No, the last one is Wood Lane; thats the old central line building on the right isn't it? A few of the 3 aspect signals ended up elsewhere around the system; also its way too built up for hillingdon.
Pic 8 - Very happy to accept this correction. The wide 6 foot way is further evidence in support of the H&C section, and yes the outline of the old bulls-eyes can be seen on the old Central London Railway station buiding..
Pic 2 - I withdraw the suggestion of Edgware. I think the bridge is the wrong design and the signal is definitely on the wrong side of the track.
On 4), I notice that the destination blind reads Stanmore. I wonder if that was a train that tipped out at Neasden station or earlier due to a breakdown. I also notice a pre-1938 trailer in the mix.
Pic 4 - Looking towards the rear of the train, I'm sure it is coming from the shunting neck behind the S/B fast (Met) platform. Also the oil lamp would only have been in place on trains actually in the depot, not on ones which were stabling from the main line. Hence my belief this train is being shunted from one road to another.
1. East of Parsons Green from the footbridge to 28 Road 2. Hanger Lane Junction towards Ealing Broadway 3. Northolt siding towards West Ruislip 4. Neasden South old layout shunt from long removed 6 Road 5. As 3. but from platform 6. New 1967 stock at West Ruislip depot 7. Parsons Green 28 Road and footbridge 8. H&C viaduct west of Wood Lane
Edit 6. Just spotted the Central route map so maybe Hainault when they ran on the shuttle
As there are definately two 58 trailers in the formation in No 4 the date would be pre-1973 when the last of them was withdrawn. It also proves beyond any shadow of doubt that some sets ran with two 58 trailers. Another thread solved! No 7 would be before September 1971 as that is when the Q stock went. It looks like it is still in service as the shoegear is intact. No 5 is taken before the 59/62 stock was fitted with stabling lights which became the easy way of distinguishing between the two types.
The Pway staff in 1 and 2 either demonstrating the wrong way to trackwalk for a safety campaign or being very silly. Walking in the 'four-foot' with your back to the oncoming trains is not wise.....
Thanks all for your suggestions. I was 99% certain about all but the first one - for some reason I didn't think it was Parsons Green, but I'll have a closer look at the scale plans now. The Northolt, Hanger Lane Junction and White City ones I was 100% on - I've got some of the number plates from that area.
