  • Description

    The S8 London Underground stock has been in service since 2010 and is used on the Metropolitan, District, Circle and Hammersmith & City lines. The S stock ('S' stands for 'Sub-surface') has less seating than previous trains, but is capable of faster acceleration and has more room for standing passengers.

    S8 stock has air conditioning and low floors to facilitate access for disabled passengers and it is possible for passengers to walk from one car to the next while the train is moving.

    The S8 has been developed in conjunction with a current S8 driver to ensure the utmost authenticity and accuracy.

    The S8 will operate on any third- or fourth-rail route but Just Trains' Metropolitan Line has been specifically developed for the S8 and S7+1 Advanced and the Just Trains London-Aylesbury route includes the section of the Metropolitan line which runs beside the main line route. These routes include custom London Underground signalling and various invisible markers which allow the functioning of S8 features such as the tripcock safety device, door opening interlock and the simulated in-cab video screens which display at stations. Certain advanced features of the S8 will not function on routes that are not specifically designed for it.

    The depiction in this simulation is not intended to be a true-to-life representation of how all areas of TfL operate, including health & safety etc. Care has been taken to ensure the design elements closely match TfL’s IP, however this has not been reviewed in line with TfL’s brand guidelines, and TfL takes no responsibility for any discrepancies.
