Last 1967 Victoria Line Stock by  Nick

It's a Victoria Line Tube train fronted with historical signage to mark the 1967 stock making its last ever journey  (Bloo Phoenix has more photos of its last journey and many other photographers were out in force).

Update: Geofftech has made a video of the last journey of the 1967 stock, with passengers opinions of the new Victoria Line stock:
