Jubilee Line Extra Carriages - What will they look like?

London Underground slowly unveiling the new Jubilee Line carriages

Oooh er - London Underground and Tubelines are gradually unveiling the fact that from January 2006 longer trains on the Jubilee Line will be rolled our with a 7th car in the hope of easing some of the overcrowding on this line. It will allow "an extra 6,000 people to travel each hour when the Tube is at its busiest". Some readers have already been
discussing the impact of this, to a certain extent:

Jubilee Line Extra Carriage Ad

I saw this ad for the first time a couple of days ago (it may have been up longer as I've been in the States for a week), and we still have little ideas as to what the trains and carriages will actually look like. A number of you guessed that the mobile phone ad was shot in the new carriages (last Friday's quiz), but considering they weren't brought into the Jubilee Line's Depot at Stratford until as recently as November 2nd, that would have been unlikely.

Keep your eyes peeled if you're on the Jubilee Line, was who knows maybe you will see one of the new longer trains and carriages, sooner than 31st December 2005 when they are being rolled out!
