First LT C69/77 stock at Eastleigh for scrapping - 20th October 2012

LT C69 Uncoupling Trailer 6575

Reading this thread on District Dave's London Underground Forum, the first C69/77 stock to be sent for scrapping included this coach 6575. The train 5532 + 6532 + 6575 + 5575 was involved in a side-swipe incident, however all of the remainder of this stock will now be following it to scrapyards.

There is some video of the train being moved under its own power to Northwood, which was then followed by road transport, also seen on more video.

The C69 stock started service in September 1970 on the Circle and Hammersmith & City Lines, and was constructed by Metro-Cammell at Washwood Heath.
