Over 1100 cars of 1938 stock were built for London Underground with additional cars continued to be built into the 1950s. The 1938 stock was revolutionary in both its styling and being the first underground stock with all the equipment located under the floor (rather than in cabinets above the sole bars). The 1938 stock were used on the Bakerloo, Northern, Piccadilly, East London and Central lines at various points in their life – perhaps being most noted for running on the Bakerloo and Northern lines until the 1980s. Following withdrawal of last 1938 stock sets in 1988, 20 cars were sold to BR for refurbishment and use on the Isle of Wight as the Class 483 units.
We are offering the 1938 stock in two complementary packs configured as per the real 7-car sets made up of a 4-car basic pack (this product) and a 3-car add-on pack. The 4-car pack consists of: “A” motor – Trailer – Non-Driving Motor (NDM) – “D’ motor. For a full 7-car set you will need to combine this product with the 3-car add-on pack.
Our model features:
- detailed bodyshells with separate flush-glazing
- one car motorised
- DCC socket in each driving car (ie both A and D driving motors cars in a 4-car unit)
- moulded interiors
- working head and tail lights
- saloon lighting (non-motor cars only)
- alternative couplers for ends to enable sets to be run in multiple (simple bar couplings in set)
