The stock was replaced by British Rail Class 482 units in 1992, which were virtually identical to the [[London Underground 1992 Stock|1992 stock]] used on the [[Central Line]]. The line was converted to four-rail operation in common with other tube lines: the original steel positive rail was retained, with the new negative rail made from aluminium. The positive rail was replaced by an aluminium one in 2008. Since its introduction, this stock on the Waterloo & City has diverged sufficiently from that used on the [[Central Line]] through various modifications, primarily to the latter with the introduction of Automatic Train Operation, that the two are no longer interchangeable. It was almost immediately after the introduction of this stock that management of the line was transferred to [[London Underground]]. The line is now operated using [[London Underground 1992 Stock|1992 Stock]] trains, and run in 4-car sets.
