D stock near Dagenham East

Description
The D stock is used only on the District Line of London's Underground network, and the type was introduced 1977-1980. They are the only type in service with single-leaf doors. These trains are made up of six cars and are nearly the same dimensions as mainline surface trains, as they only run in shallow sub-surface tunnels in central London. A thorough refurbishment took place between 2006 and 2008 which will enable them to continue in service until 2014 (losing the maple floors and the much-loved 'bobbles' for standing passengers to hold on to), and this model depicts a refurbished train which is in the new red, white and blue LU corporate livery. It is on the long above-ground section in the eastern suburbs of London, and in its current position passes through a heathland area. #carriages #D_stock #london #metro #railway #train #underground
