Photo - D Stock at Ealing Common Depot
D Stock at Ealing Common Depot with the leading
car standing over current rails ready for entry into service.
The headlights on this stock are mounted in a
cluster, together with the tail lights, stabling light and calling on light. This
was the first stock to have twin window wipers so that the window on the instructor's side
was also provided with one.
The whistle is now located over the offside
window. It was originally fitted to the nearside handrail next to the front door but
it never worked well in that position. Note the radio aerial fitted over the
driver's side windscreen. This was fitted as part of the OPO (One Person Operation)
conversion of 1985. The District Line stickers are also a recent addition.
