Share Your Desktop – December 2020

My desktop this month is a photo of London Underground C-Stock trains at Farringdon Station. Introduced in 1970, they provided services on the Circle and Hamersmith & City lines. They had a mid-life refurbishment beginning in 1989 which saw the original brushed aluminium finish replaced by the livery seen in this image which was taken in 2010. Withdrawal of the class began in 2012 and continued as replacement S-Stock arrived from the manufacturers. The last C-Stock service ran in June 2014.

  1. I have changed trains there so many times over the years and I have sometimes got off there to walk down to our company office near St Pauls. Next time I visit (when lockdown is over) I will find a very different station with its new Crossrail connection 🙂
