LEGO London Tube D78 Stock Train

The London Tube has plans to fully remove the D78 stock train from the London Underground fleet and replace it with the latest S stock trains.

However, you still have the chance to own a smaller version of this train by downloading the LEGO London Tube D78 Stock Train created by The Bobby Brix Channel.

The London Tube D78 Stock Train

The London Underground D78 Stock was a type of sub-surface rolling stock which operated on the District line of the London Underground, except on the Wimbledon to Edgware Road service. Following the withdrawal of the C Stock in June 2014, these were the oldest subsurface trains in service on the London Underground. The first units were withdrawn in January 2015 with the last withdrawn on 21 April 2017.

The D Stock consisted of six-car trains, as opposed to the seven-car trains of CO/CP and R Stock, whose cars were shorter: under normal operation, each train consisted of two 3-car units, and 20 of the units are double-ended to allow 3-car operations under exceptional circumstances. The traction motors were the same LT118 type as on 1973 Tube Stock, but the bogies are different. With single-leaf doors and transverse and longitude seating, the style is very similar to 1983 stock on the Jubilee line.

The trains brought many innovations. The rubber coil suspension meant a smoother ride for passengers. The driver’s cab is more ergonomic, the seat swiveling to move forwards, backwards, up or down. The dead man’s handle is replaced by a joystick that needs to be twisted for the dead man feature, and moved fore and aft for motoring and braking. There is a Train Management System replacing the original Train Equipment Panel that highlights faults to the driver.
