Back to work with a quiz - where on the Tube was this shot?

Scissor Sisters' Mary Video - Where was it filmed?

Back to work for the majority of people today (commisserations if you had to go back last week), and this
Scissor Sisters video has that real hum drum feeling of doing the same old, same old, which recruitment agencies take advantage of now "New Year - time to find a new job" - you know the ads. Over the holidays, I saw the Scissor Sisters' video to their hit single Mary for the first time and the London Underground features fairly heavily at the beginning.

Firstly, our heroine Mary gets up, gets washed, puts on make up, gets on a crowded Tube half asleep, gets a seat, then gets off and eventually appears in Canary Wharf Tube station.

But what train is she on first (which line &/or ideally - for real Tube experts - which stock)? Bear in mind there may have been some artistic licence with the trains that were used and it may not be a train or a line that actually goes through Canary Wharf. See if you can work it out from the screen grabs below or by watching the video:

What's the train Mary is waiting for?

What's the train Mary is squeezed onto here?

What's the train Mary is sitting in?

Usual competition rules apply - one guess only per person in the comments below. In the event of more than one person guessing correctly (which I think is likely to happen - even if you make a wild guess - there's a good chance in getting the line correct), all the correct entries will undergo the Neil paperclip selection, so that we'll have only one winner. People who make more than one guess will be disqualified. Please leave your email address or your blog/website in the comments if you wish to enter. You have until Sunday 8th January 2006 23.59 GMT to make your guess.

Oh and the prize - a wonderful enamel "No Begging" London Underground fridge magnet - ideal for putting on filing cabinets too to tell colleagues they can't beg to get favours from you.
