Pre-1938 stock[edit]

Why is this stock also referred to as pre-1938 stock as the 1935 stock was also built before 1938 and is of a totally different design to the Standard Stock. The 1938 stock was based on the 1935 stock. Therefore pre-1938 should be pre-1935 instead.Jsp3970 13:07, 23 August 2006 (UTC)

Pre-1938 is a designation used by many of the published sources. There are no published sources which use the pre-1935 designation, since that stock was experimental. Bob1960evens (talk) 10:04, 23 April 2012 (UTC)

I'm surprised that no-one has edited this page to reflect the fact that several of the 1938TS trains on the Bakerloo had a standard-stock trailer, complete with clerestory roof and razor-strop end door windows, well after the rest of the standard stock was withdrawn.

If you have a source for this information, then please add it yourself. Bob1960evens (talk) 10:04, 23 April 2012 (UTC)

Confusing opening sentence[edit]

"The Standard Stock title was applied to a variety of Tube stock built between 1923-34, which shared the same basic characteristics, but with some detailed differences."

Specifically the part that says "which shared the same basic characteristics". Shared with what? Different than what? If it's comparing this variety of Tube stock with the previous variety (which is what I would assume it to be saying) then it should be worded to explicitly state what it's comparing it to, especially considering there are several varieties listed. As it stands I have no idea what versions share similar basic characteristics or even what those characteristics are. StarkRG (talk) 04:23, 16 February 2010 (UTC)

Shared with each other. As the sentence says, there were several types of tube stock built between 1923 and 1934, which were all similar in appearance and design, but were not identical, as they were built by several manufacturers. Bob1960evens (talk) 10:04, 23 April 2012 (UTC)

1922 or Competition Stock[edit]

Does anyone have a source for the experimental 1923 cars being called 1922 or Competition Stock? In all my sources, the 1920 Stock is called 1919/22 Stock, and there is no mention of 1922 being applied to the standard stock prototypes. Bob1960evens (talk) 10:02, 4 May 2012 (UTC)

I have finally found a source for the Competition Stock designation - Hardy (2001) p.54. Bob1960evens (talk) 08:15, 25 April 2014 (UTC)
