London Underground Q31 stock (L stock originally)
London Underground L Stock was built for the District line in 1932 and subsequently absorbed into the London Underground Q Stock, being redesignated Q31 Stock.
The L Stock trains were built to provide additional rolling stock for the eastward extension of the District Line from Barking to Upminster.
Forty-five cars were built by the Union Construction Company, eight were driving motor cars and the rest were trailers. The eight motor cars, numbered 700-714 (even numbers only), were initially owned by the London Midland and Scottish Railway.
The L Stock was based on the 1927 K Stock.
The conversion from L Stock to Q31 Stock took place in the late 1930s, with the major modification being the conversion of the hand-operated sliding doors to air operation. The last Q Stock trains were withdrawn in 1971.
