Thank you for visiting District Dave’s new London Underground Web site.

This site was launched on Sunday 14 August 2011, superseding District Dave’s original Trainweb pages that will remain online as at tribute to both him and his foresight. It also complements District Dave’s London Underground forum which Dave originally started back in February 2005.

Since then the forum has grown from just a handful of members, to almost 1000, from all walks of life. Some work within the railway industry or are employed by London Underground in a variety of roles, others are railway enthusiasts or enjoy



If you want to discuss anything ranging from rolling stock, stations, photography, signalling and even the history of the subsurface and tube network, we believe that the District Dave London Underground Forum is the place to be. If you’re not a member already, we hope to welcome you as one soon.


As within any industry or firm, rumour and gossip about railways and in particular London Underground, is always rife.

This site will responsibly pass on relevant up-to-date factual information that is felt to be of interest. Please visit the forum pages for more information and discussion.

Half of the C Stocks Have Gone

As more S7 trains arrive from Bombardier, the tipping point has arrived with just over half of the C69/77/08 units having now been withdrawn. With District Line drivers now being trained on the new S7 units, the start of the D stock withdrawals is likely to commence during 2014.

A Cat called Victoria

Its been a few months since I’ve managed to update the news page, so I thought I’d add this happy story. We all know that “funny cats” is one of the most popular searches on YouTube. How then can we associate a cat story with the Underground.

Simple - these BBC and Guardian news item reports of a 4 weeks old lost kitten that was recently handed in to Underground staff at Victoria station having been found in a box on a District Line train. To quote my wife Melanie when I told her about the cat.... “How sweet!”


As this web-site continues to develop, feel free to pop back anytime to discover the latest changes. If you have any suggestions regarding the site structure or would like to submit articles, news items or simply make any comments, please contact me via my e-mail address.

Many thanks
