The 1938 Stock was built as part of the London Passenger Transport Board's New Works Programme 1935–1940. The trains were primarily intended for use on the Northern and Bakerloo lines, with an additional seven trains also being used on the Piccadilly line.
So successful was the 1938 Stock that, when in 1948 additional cars were needed, 91 almost identical cars were built, 70 non-driving-motor (NDM) cars and 21 trailer cars. These were known as 1949 stock and operated with the 1938 stock.
They were starting to show their age by the late 1960s; the first withdrawals from the Northern line took place in the early 1970s.
Some trains were run with nine cars. If you wish to replicate this, please contact us and we will let you know the cost for the additional bodies.
