|Details: I was recently asked about the possibility of adding railway service stock to this website. This doesn't seem to go beyond the remit of the site so such items will be eligible for inclusion from now on. Eventually they will be added to the database as well.|
Perhaps the most well known items in the current rail service stock fleet are the battery locomotives. Capable of running in tube tunnels, using either rail electricity supply or battery power, a total of 52 were built between 1938 and 1986. 37 were still in stock in 1997 although many were stored out of use. L44 was built by BREL at Doncaster in 1974 and was seen at the open day at Morden Depot on 4th November 1990. It was one of just two to have its plain yellow livery altered to have green sides, although this was later changed to blue.
