Dear Mr Gooding

 

Our Ref:         FOI-0781-1516

 

Thank you for your e-mail received on 31 July 2015.

 

Your request has been considered in accordance with the requirements of
the Freedom of Information Act and our information access policy. I can
confirm we hold some of the information you require.

 

Please find attached the drawings for the 1972 (Bakerloo Line), 1973
(Piccadilly Line), 1992 (Central / Waterloo & City Line), 2009 and D Tube
Stock as well as 1996 (Jubilee Line), apart from the Special Trailer car
added in 2004 – which is almost identical to the trailer car drawing on
Drawing No 201-A-01-AA-003. Please note that the 1995 (Northern Line) Tube
Stock drawings would also be very similar to those of the 1996 (Jubilee
Line) Tube Stock. Please also find attached a copy of the London
Underground Rolling Stock Data sheets.

 

Please find attached a copy of the rolling stock data sheets for the S7
and S8 Stock trains.

 

At present these are the only drawings we have of these trains, the
supplier Bombardier Transportation UK has more detailed drawings but you
would need to contact them directly to see whether they would be happy to
release them. Please note that Bombardier are not subject to the FOI Act.

 

Please find attached the current fleet lists for London Overground and
London Underground. The London Underground fleet list is constantly
changing as S Stock is introduced e.g. on the attached list the C Stock is
now gone and Hammersmith & City is all S7. D Stock is now going and will
be replaced by S7 stock by 2016. There are no other changes. A new list
will be compiled once all of the changes have been completed.

 

Please see below the DLR fleet list below:

 

·         B92 vehicle numbers: 22-99, 01-16 (Note no. 00) = 94 vehicles

·         B2007 vehicle numbers: 101-155 = 55 vehicles

·         Total 149 vehicles

 

A copy of the iBus and London Overground announcements has been sent to
you in the post.

 

It should be noted that the iBus announcements are recorded as fragments.
As a result, some announcements would not feature in full as the full
announcement would just be made up of two or more fragments that have
already been recorded.

 

Announcements used on the services that London Overground took over from
Abellio Greater Anglia on 31 May 2015 are not held as audio files. They
are held on a server and we access them through existing server and
rolling stock. I can confirm that we have no current plans to create any
new recordings.

 

Please also note that while access to this material will be provided to
you under the Freedom of Information Act 2000, you are not granted any
rights to any of the intellectual property that exists in it or granted
any permission to make secondary uses of it.

 

TfL owns all intellectual property (including, without limitation,
copyright) in the material supplied and will defend such rights.

 

If you wish to make any secondary use of the material provided, you must
first obtain the consent of TfL (which may be withheld) and, if consent is
granted, a fee may be charged, in accordance with the terms of the Reuse
of Public Sector Information Regulations 2005.

 

In accordance with the FOI Act, TfL is not obliged to supply the audio
files for London Underground’s Tube announcements as the information is
subject to a statutory exemption to the right of access to information
under section 43(2).

 

In this instance section 43(2) has been applied as disclosure of the
information requested would be likely to prejudice the commercial
interests of TfL and/or Global Services Ltd. The recordings in question
were provided to London Underground from Global Services Ltd under a
signed contract which contained explicit conditions concerning disclosure
and distribution.

 

The contract specifies that the recordings are solely to be used for the
purpose for which they were created and for broadcast on the London
Underground network only. If TfL were to disclose these recordings in
response to an FOI request, it would constitute an actionable breach of
contract and would be likely to result in a valid legal claim against
London Underground or the license to use the recordings being withdrawn,
which would impose additional, unnecessary, costs. TfL wishes to protect
its commercial interests and ability to participate in future commercial
activity. The disclosure of this information would be to the detriment of
present and future business activities for both parties.

 

The use of this exemption is subject to an assessment of the public
interest in relation to the disclosure of the information concerned.  TfL
recognises the need for openness and transparency within public
authorities and the degree of public interest concerning London transport
announcements in light of the recent disclosure of iBus announcements.
However, in this instance this is outweighed by the damage that would be
done to TfL’s ability to use these recordings and any future contractual
negotiations that may take place regarding the London Underground
announcements.

 

If this is not the information you are looking for, or if you are unable
to access it for some reason, please feel free to contact me.

 

Please see the attached information sheet for details of your right to
appeal as well as information on copyright and what to do if you would
like to re-use any of the information we have disclosed.

 

Yours sincerely
