A few more offerings from the 1920’s starting with a trial run of prototype tube stock from a number of British manufacturers including one designed by the tube engineers themselves. Perfection in Tube Travel tells it all from 1923. Can those that know please tell me what resulted, and who presented the favoured design – or was it a mixture?
Last but not least is an extended article covering the opening of the joint Metropolitan and L.N.E.R. branch to Watford with some lovely period views and a detailed description of the extended mutual back-slapping that characterised these auspicious occasions.
The tube cars were the protoype Standard Stock and were originally referred to as the 1922 Sample Cars. The LER design was the one chosen, or close to it. There was previously a mock-up of the design built in Golders Green depot I think. There is a photo of it in "Underground Movement" by Paul Moss.
