The Present 2015
For details and photos of test train running before 2015 see the index here.
The line is leased by LUL in order to test and commission the next generation of London Underground trains, known as Sub Surface Lines (SSL) trains. Serco Assurance were awarded the contract to manage the whole of the test track of behalf of LUL which will give them the opportunity to attract other interested parties to the line.
In October 2013 the BRB Residuary was abolished and the line passed to NR ownership.
3Z10 ran on Tuesday 20th with 37402 & 37425 top and tail, returning to Derby in the evening.
