S7 Stock on the Circle and District Lines 04/09/13, 05/09/13

When I heard on forums that the S7s had been introduced onto the Circle and District Lines on the 2nd September, I (Au) had to get a look, as I was free, and I found the workings!

Trains 207/214 of the Circle Line and Train 753 of District Line running (Olympia) Earl's Court-West Ham.

First was the 4th Sept on...:

Whilst I waited for the train to get back, I went to Mile End, and got:

I then went into Mile End Station to find the train again! So I took it to Whitechapel for more photos:

  3. This is just purely wrong. How the hell can you replace Emma Clarke's recordings on the District Line?! She's way better than this hyper lady who does the Metropolitan Line. :(
