Mem­o­ries of Q car rolling stock

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - YOUR VIEWS -

BE­ING of the older gen­er­a­tion, I re­mem­ber the old ‘Q’ type [Ad­ver­tiser/Ex­am­iner Novem­ber 21] rolling stock and cer­tainly the more re­cent sub-sur­face ‘A’ (Amer­sham) rolling stock that was hur­riedly with­drawn be­fore the 2012 Lon­don Olympics.

Their suc­ces­sors, the Bom­bardier ‘S’ stock trains, are not a patch on their pre­de­ces­sors – these new trains are cold in win­ter with un­com­fort­able, side­ways seat­ing that is un­us­able, if you do not want a pain in the neck.

Lon­don trans­port (TFL) started go­ing down­hill when it started re­fer­ring to the trav­el­ling pub­lic as ‘cus­tomers’ rather than ‘pas­sen­gers.’
