Tube commuters in London have been given a glimpse of recent air conditioned practice carriages set for introduction to the community from 2025.
The photographs present how they’ll look inside as soon as they’re used on the Piccadilly line.
“The first trains are being put through rigorous testing on a test track and in a climate chamber with extreme weather conditions,” TfL stated on X, previously Twitter.
The Piccadilly line has been upgraded as a part of a £2.9bn funding programme.
It stops at central London stations similar to Leicester Square and Kings Cross St Pancras and runs all the best way to Heathrow Airport in west London, accounts for greater than 10% of all journeys on the London Underground, in accordance with TfL.
This equates to round 200 million annual journeys.

Alongside air-conditioning – the primary time it has been used on a deep Tube practice – the enhancements embrace walk-through carriages, digital digital show screens for buyer data, CCTV cameras and wider double-doors.
The new carriages will substitute the 86 present ones which have been in service for 48 years. The transfer must also enhance the variety of companies via central London from 24 to 27 trains an hour.
Many of the brand new carriages are being constructed by Siemens Mobility Ltd on the firm’s rail facility at Goole, within the East Riding of Yorkshire.
