CP (red) and R (white) stock District Line trains at Upminster Station.
Originally the red coloured CO / CP / COP trains were painted in dark red and featured gilt coloured (with black edging) lettering. In 1973 this was changed to 'bus' red with white lettering. This image shows the two variants side by side.
A train composed of a mixture of unpainted aluminium and (white) painted steel cars on the District Line. The twin windows in the central saloon between the double doors suggests that these three cars seen here are of post ware construction.]]
Inside a red P Stock train. The internal doorways (without doors) comes from when the District line included provision for 1st class pasengers - 1st class was split into two sections (smoking and non-smoking) and the rest of the carriage was for 3rd class passengers. 1st class was abolished in 1940 as a war-time economy.
Inside a COP trailer, which always was for 3rd class pasengers only. Note the decorative 'half moon' shaped glass on some of the seat backs.

London's underground trains come in two different sizes - the smaller 'tube' trains and the larger 'mainline' size trains. A Metropolitan Line 'A' stock subsurface train and a Piccadilly Line 1973 tube train.
The nickname "Tube" comes from the almost circular tube-like tunnels through which the small profile trains run. This photograph shows a southbound Northern Line train leaving a tunnel mouth just north of Hendon Central station.
