As of yet RMT haven't produced the document and TfL released a firm denial yesterday afternoon through the BBC. LUL is a fine place for rumours so this could be Bob just trying to work up a suitable level of paranoia but at the moment the happiest people are the Tories at the GLA who still seem to believe Boris’s suggestion that driverless trains could be here tomorrow. I’m not checking the job ads just yet……

Yesterday morning the subStandard announced that the RMT had come into possession of a document suggesting there will be trials of the new driverless train system on the Jubilee Line in the autumn during engineering hours. Seeing as there are no plans at the moment to convert the Jubilee to NoPO it seems highly unlikely that they’d be testing there rather than on the Waterloo & City where LUL have said they will be holding trials sometime after 2014.
