1950's London Underground Quiz

It's a nifty fifites quiz

Ben Apps kindly wrote and supplied the prize for this Friday's quiz, as I was wondering what to do from the States.

Please answer the following questions (please don't give any links proving that you know the right answers as that just helps everyone else!!!) and there is a bonus two points if you are the first person to answer your question correctly.

1. What Underground line was the first to have unpainted aluminium trains in 1953?

2. On what date in the 1950s did the last timetabled steam train run from Epping To Ongar?

3. Which existing Underground station was given its current name in the 1950s, and what was it called before being renamed?

4. Which station was last served by London Underground in the 1950s?

5. In what year was the following picture taken

Guess the year this was taken
