The C stock was built by Metro Cammell in Washwood Heath, Birmingham, and first entered service in 1970, displacing CO/CP stock on the Circle and Hammersmith & City lines. Classified as C69 they were delivered in unpainted aluminium finish with black roofs. A further batch, classified C77, was delivered in 1977 to replace CO/CP stock on the District Line's Edgware Road to Wimbledon service. In the early 1990's they were all refurbished and painted in London Underground's corporate livery.
This video traces the history of this stock, and gives extensive cover of them in the final years of operation on all three lines. Also featured are the Yellow Pages and Olympic Bid liveries.
It concludes with coverage of the "C Stock Explorer Tour" in April 2014, when the Metropolitan branches to Amersham, Watford and Uxbridge were visited, together with parts of the Piccadilly Line, and finally with the "C Stock Farewell Rail Tour" of 29th June, covering the lines it normally ran on.
