Details: An interesting photograph taken at Acton Town Station on 21st January 2015 shows Allelys DAF XF tractor unit T200AHH moving D-stock car 7065 across the junction. Although it may appear as though it had come up Bollo Lane, as the tyre tracks show, this was not the case. It had in fact reversed down Museum Way, the train having presumably been loaded in the rear yard of the museum depot. The select registration T200AHH disguises the fact that this DAF was new in 2009. Now that all the A and C stock trains have been withdrawn, deliveries of new S stock are replacing the relatively young D stock on the District Line. An interesting plan being considered is to fit diesel engines to the redundant trains and use them to replace Pacer units on regional railway services. It amazes me that moving railway stock by road is now considered the norm, not just for LUL stock but also for former BR locos and coaches.
