Why worse? You think the air is going to suddenly heat up so much as to
be ineffective by having to travel an extra metre or 2?

Also having AC didn't require the S stock to have tiny windows. They're
"solution" appears to be half assed and done for cost reasons.

You would include a very wide pillar that completely blocked the outside
view from a number of seats, thus achieving the exact opposite of what you
want. The fans would also have to be more powerful, making the trains less
energy efficient and the aircon more noisy.

I think the aircon units are in the S stock roofs. Try doing that in a Tube
train!

Its air, not water. It doesn't need a huge pipe. High pressure tyre inflators
manage with something 1cm in diameter.

Physics not your strong point? When its re-expanded it'll cool down to at or
below the temperature it went in at. This is after all how AC works, albeit
using HCFCs.

By now, your ugly, inconvenient solution is costing more than the much
better solution the real engineers have implemented. It's a good thing you
make bugs, not trains.

Better for the accountants maybe, not the passengers. But we all know they
don't count otherwise they wouldn't have replaced all the seats in the 73
stock with fabric covered concrete in the last few years.

Also I'm sure the AC in the new trains will work well enough to keep people
happy while the train is stuck in yet another tunnel due to the knackered
signalling which is what actually needed to be replaced, not the trains.

Yes, I wonder what happened to the comfortable old cushions?

Both need replacing, but so far there's only enough funding for the first
batch of trains. If money can be found to replace the old signalling, then
the second batch of trains can be ordered to take advantage of it. The
Bakerloo order needs to be placed soon, too, or the new Goole factory will
be shut.

The good news is that TfL ridership is rising, so fare revenues should be
booming. But government assistance is still needed for large capital
investments.

They've probably saved a few in the Acton Depot for Tim Dunn to coo over next
time he's there.

Presumably they were life expired in some way and instead of coughing up to
replace them LU put hard plastic/metal/whatever underneath instead. Just what
you want on a line where a substantial proportion of the ridership goes all the
way out to Heathrow.

Hah, yeah, if. The northern line got new trains in the late 90s. The
signalling wasn't upgraded until 15 years later so I won't hold my breath.

Riding around in both the morning and evening peaks in central London on
Wednesday, the system seemed rather less busy than I remembered from a
past life.
