The last original Victoria Line train apparently went to 'meet its breaker', this weekend. 

Here are two videos – of building the line...

No helmets, or gloves, or (probably) steel-capped boots
– not ALL of "elf'n'safety" is rubbish!

The manager ignored the lower ranks, and asked the Queen
to start the train, but nothing happened.
The driver eventually pointed out to him that he
"had to close the bloody window".
