THE first air-conditioned train on the London Underground has arrived ready to go into service.
The new train will run on the Metropolitan Line in time for next summer when the network is notorious for stuffy, crowded, over-heated carriages.
It is the first step in the replacement of the fleet, with 58 new trains rolling out by 2011.
The train arrived on the same day Transport for London approved its updated Business Plan yesterday which sets out how services and new projects will be maintained up to 2018.
