Does BR stock fit on the underground??
Yes it does!
Saturday, 01st October, 1988

The London Regional Transport 'Battery Rover' saw two LUL battery locos, usually used for engineering trains, haul a 5 coach Gatwick Express unit on a route starting at Wimbledon to Strawberry Hill, Richmond, Paddington, Barking, Aldgate East, Earls Court and back to Wimbledon. Probably the best part of the tour was Passing through Victoria station and seeing the looks of people who had just got off a Gatwick Express seeing one pass before them on the underground platforms. A very cranky, and thoroughly enjoyable, tour indeed.
