Anyone going down to Baylis Road / Spur Road this weekend to see the transfer of old to new trains for the Waterloo & City Line?

I remember the now old ones being placed down on the rails and it was quite exciting to watch! I hope to take some snaps and post them here.

I've just found my photos from the swap-over of rolling stock in 1993 ... predictably they were in the very last wallet in the last box of photos I got out.

Will scan a few and post them.

Cool! Will be good to see as my dad can't find his set!

I've just been told that they won't be new trains, they will be the old ones but refurbished!

Will be interesting to see how dirty they have got since 1993 before the work is done on them.

I'll take some snaps later, post them on my website and give a link here.

Fantastic!

Very impressive watching the men with the string at each corner guide the carriage down between the lampposts. And the crane was a good tonka-toy scale machine - Joan indulgently let me watch one carriage being lowered on to its trailer before getting too impatient - lots of other overgrown boys there watching the exercise too...

I don't think a single person going by could resist whipping out their mobile to take a quick snap of the carriage in mid air... well you just can't, can you...

Are they still doing it today or have they finished?

I can't see the crane from my living room today so I'm guessing they have finished.

Oh well, will keep an eye out for when they bring the trains back again. Thanks.

For those who missed the spectacle first time round, the W&C line trains are returning to Waterloo over the next two weekends.
