Graham Neil: Head of Rolling Stock, London Underground
Graham Neil joined London Underground LU in 1971 on a 4 year electrical apprenticeship followed by 5 years in rolling stock electronics maintenance. He then joined the rolling stock engineering department as an auxiliary equipment engineer responsible for the specification, procurement, testing and commissioning of various electrical components, communications and on-board telemetry monitoring systems. During this period he also introduced the replacement auto-driver boxes (ATO equipment) for the Victoria Line.
After a short period as head of LU’s rolling stock electronic development department he became the rolling stock standards engineer and subsequently became the New Stock Engineer responsible for defining the requirements for, and acceptance of, the new fleets for the Central and Jubilee Lines. Later he became the project engineer for the introduction of the Northern Line fleet and for delivering improvements during its reliability growth period.
Since 2004 he has been the Head of Rolling Stock with responsibility for the strategic development of future rolling stock and for ensuring the safety, design, maintenance, acceptance and approval of all existing, new or modified LU and 3rd party rolling stock used on the London Underground.
