On the day of the 1938 Tube Stock's run on the Piccadilly Line my friend and Central Line SDM extraordinaire Phil Wimbush had been trying to get to Acton Town to take some photos. Unfortunately London Underground conspired against him in the shape of a signal failure at Eastcote, so his efforts were foiled!
However, the results of the failure presented a chance to get a most unusual photo, In the shape of an A60 train in very close proximity to a 73TS train as the drivers proceeded to work their trains forward 'under rule'!
In Phil's own words 'Please find attached my '38 stock compensation shot, I boarded the '73 at Uxbridge to go to Acton Town ( for the '38 ) and on arrival at Ickenham we joined the queue to trip past a signal in the Eastcote area, realising how long this would take, I crossed over the bridge and came home with the right sulks !!'
Bad luck Phil, but thanks for a great picture!
