On Monday 19th September, the Jubilee line ran a full compliment of 96TS (bar the 1 that's long term stopped). Does anyone know the last time 96TS were available to such a degree?
I'm not disputing that but am surprised given the long-term fleet problems, although I guess (as with the Olympics) all stops were pulled to get as many trains running as possible. (Although as an aside, one must question the rationale for running trains an extra hour later that day; by all accounts they were deadly quiet at that hour.)
The word on the street is that cancellations (up to 10 trains a day) will continue into next year as a lack of spare parts is causing problems. Quite what spares these are I don't know. Certainly last time I passed Stratford depot there were a number of "half" units on the outside roads.
