  • currently - easy? probably better: at the moment; at this time. But my problem is more, that this phrase isn't encyclopaedic.
    Rephrased, hopefully this is better. If not, perhaps "that has been running on the line since 1967"? Please let me know. Goblin 20:06, 23 June 2009 (UTC) I ♥ Kennedy!
  • The train operator controls when the doors open and close. The train operator also starts the train by pressing two buttons at the same time. - sounds odd. twice the same start
    Merged the two sentences together. Goblin 20:07, 23 June 2009 (UTC) I ♥ Kennedy!
  • At this time - not realy an encyclopaedic writing.
  • The 1967 Stock will be replaced by 2009 Stock within the next few years. - hoax without ref.
    Getting one for this, bear with me. Goblin 20:16, 23 June 2009 (UTC) I ♥ Kennedy!
  • Announcer system - completely without refs.
    It's hard to actually reference this. It's not in (m)any of the references that I have found so far, and i'm pretty much going on what I heard when I was on a train the other day, and also what is pretty much common knowledge within London. TfL don't tend to write down when they change over the voice overs.
  • Furthermore, only one ref for the whole article is not enough. The template at the bottom are many redlinks. They should be created.
    There's three refs, and that's pretty much as good as you're going to get. Two websites and one book. There really isn't much available on the actual stock, without getting really technical by finding the actual manuals and stuff... and unfortunately i'm not a TfL employee. And we spoke on IRC about the redlinks ;). Goblin 20:16, 23 June 2009 (UTC) I ♥ Kennedy!

What is a stock in this context, is there another word, or something we can link to? Best, NonvocalScream (talk) 19:30, 25 June 2009 (UTC)

Stock is the official name, and it's pretty commonly used throughout the railway industry, it being short for rolling stock. Train(s) could also be used. Goblin 19:33, 25 June 2009 (UTC) I ♥ Kennedy!
