Metropolitan 1904/5 electric stock


The first electric multiple units ran on 1 January 1905 from Uxbridge to Baker Street. The first design had open access as ends of coaches which was not popular with passengers. These were replaced with enclosed entrances. Also having access only at ends increased time at stations so doors were added to centre of coach. All were modified from 1911 to 1918. 
New stock was added with improvements, and lasted up till WW2,some motor units being converted into non motor all thirds. Final units withdrawn in 1940s. 
During WW2 some withdrawn units were used on the Mersey Railway, repainted in LMS livery, but were only used for works trains, not being required for passenger use in the end and were scrapped at end of WW2. 
One coach still exists, waiting to be restored.

Metropolitan 1913 electric stock


After successfully introducing new electric trains on the Metropolitan Railway from 1904 , new stock was introduced from 1913, based on the 1905 design, with improvements and an elliptical roof instead of a clerestory one. 

In service stock from all years could be run together, making some interesting sets. 
Some motor coaches were modified by LT in 1930s to increase seating replacing luggage van which was not required on Circle line. 
Last of the 1913 introduced coaches withdrawn in early 1950s.

Metropolitan 1919 experimental electric stock





After successfully introducing new electric trains on the Metropolitan Railway from 1904 , new stock was introduced from 1913, based on the 1905 design, with improvements and an elliptical roof instead of a clerestory one. 

Further ideas were introduced in 1919 with one full set of 1905 stock being rebuilt with swing doors. Times at stations were improved but the narrower doors caused confusion and the experiment was discontinued. The motor coaches were subsequently rebuilt as all third trailers, and newer stock was introduced with 3 sets of sliding doors on each coach side.

Metropolitan 1921 electric stock




After successfully introducing new electric trains on the Metropolitan Railway from 1904 , new stock was introduced from 1913, based on the 1905 design, with improvements and an elliptical roof instead of a clerestory one. 

Further ideas were introduced in 1919 with one full set of 1905 stock being rebuilt with swing doors. Times at stations were improved but the narrower doors caused confusion and the experiment was discontinued. The motor coaches were subsequently rebuilt as all third trailers, and newer stock was introduced in 1921 with 3 sets of sliding doors on each coach side. 

LT moved all the 1921 stock to Circle line , and rebuilt stock with end doors.Luggage area in motorcoaches converted into passenger area, similar to conversions to 1913 stock.

Survived into 1950s.

Metropolitan 1925 experimental electric stock


Motor coach



As electrification extended along main lines, experimental saloon stock was built, similar to 1921 stock. It was found that passengers preferred compartment stock so they switched to designs based on Dreadnaught coaches for all new electric trains. 
The experimental motor stock eventually ended up on East London line as a 3 car unit coupled to firstly 1919 stock then 1921 stock, and were finally withdrawn in 1950s.
