Details: The tube-profile battery locomotives used by LUL have a curious appearance, although I can't decide if they actually look ancient or modern. All the locos were fitted with new headlight clusters in the 1990s, while most have also had the lourved panels in the centre section replaced with plain ones. The large buffers were hinged and could be folded upwards and backwards if the locos had to couple to tube stock (note the supporting brackets on top of the bufferbeam). L26 was built by Metro-Cammell in 1965 and was seen near the back of the Museum Depot at Acton on 2nd November 2008.
