Dear T Werner

Thank you for your request received by us on 19 January 2022 asking for
information about London Underground rolling stock manuals.

 

Your request has been considered in accordance with the requirements of
the Freedom of Information Act and our information access policy. You
asked for:

 

the manuals of the 1972 tube stock mk1 & mk2?

 

Similar to the British Rail manuals this includes documents like the
driving instructions, static duties, preparation & disposal, or the
"manufacturers manual" created by metro cammell. If there is a "Fault
finding Data" manual i would like to request this as well.

 

Having consulted with our Corporate Archives team, we can advise that we
do not hold the precise material you are seeking. However, Corporate
Archives do have a large number of files, which may be of interest
relating to the design, planning and delivery of 1972 London Underground
rolling stock. Since over a hundred files have been found in this area, a
snapshot of a selection is provided in the attached spreadsheet.

 

The Corporate Archives catalogue is available online where the complete
list of 119 items in total can be referred to by entering a search for
‘1972 tube stock’ via:

However, please note that all of the items listed in the attached
spreadsheet, together with the files described in our catalogue are solely
available in their original physical format and need to be consulted in
person. We do not have scanned or digitised copies available. Access to
our collections is usually a service offered by inviting researchers into
the TfL Corporate Archives search room. However, their new premises are
currently under construction and so unfortunately it is currently not
possible to view these items in person. If there is anything of interest,
please email the Corporate Archives team at:
[4][email address] and your details will be added to their
waiting list. The team will be in touch with information on how to book
research appointments once they have re-opened to the public.

Museum’s online collections search for their ‘Technical records’, which
they hold to assist in the research and maintenance of their vehicle
collection. They can be accessed here:
