Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The London Underground 1996 Stock is a deep tube train used on the Jubilee Line. They were built by Alstom and began service in 1997. They are similar to the 1995 Stock used on the Northern Line, having been built at a similar time by the same manufacturer. There is a degree of confusion with regard to the manufacture and delivery of the Jubilee Line's 1996 stock and the Northern Line's 1995 stock. The development programmes for both stocks was run in parallel, with detail design work undertaken by Alstom in the UK at their Birmingham and Rugby facilities, with the first six train sets manufactured in Alstom's Barcelona factory to the 1996 Stock Jubilee Line design. All type approvals for the design were conducted on these early train sets. The production of the 1995 Stock for the Northern Line subsequently followed from the factory in Barcelona. The balance of the 1996 Stock for the Jubilee Line followed the 1995 Stock Production. Both stocks were freighted to Alstom's facility at Washwood Heath in Birmingham for final assembly and equipping, with 1995 and 1996 stock assembled in adjacent production lines.show more
