The London Underground A60 and A62 Stock operated on the Metropolitan line from 12 June 1961 to 26 September 2012, and on the East London Line from 1977 until 22 December 2007 (except in 1986, when One-man operation conversion of the fleet took place).

The stock was built in two batches (A60 and A62) by Cravens of Sheffield in the early 1960s and replaced all other trains on the line.

At the time of its withdrawal in September 2012, the stock was the oldest on the Underground, and on any Subway system in Europe[citation needed]. It was the only stock to have luggage racks, umbrella hooks and separate motoring and braking controls, and the last to have no automated announcements.
