D Stock at Ealing Common (Railed)
District Line D Stock trains
"railed" ready for service at Ealing Common Depot. The trains are
positioned so that the front car is standing on the current rails while the rest of the
train remains inside the shed, where there are no current rails. The shed is
equipped with a shore supply known as "overhead leads", consisting of plugs
suspended from trolleys running on roof mounted rails. The leads plug into
"shed receptacles" provided on motor cars. Photo by District Dave.
