The S8 version is, with a length of 133,682 meters, too long for most Simvliet/Rijndam platforms; the AI will not stop at the last stopmarker, if the length of the train is longer then the valid length for that stopmarker. If this is the case, you can still use the train, but you will have to drive it manually, stopping with the front of the train just at or past the platform end (in a way that your first and last passengers doors are within the length of the platform).

Be careful: only the LU S7 can be used like any other train. The S8, because of its length, cannot stop at the stations while drived by AI. Moreover, the plateforms in Simvliet are almost at the exact length of the stock, when in Rijndam these are a little bit longer.

The London Underground S7 and S8 Stock is a fleet of subsurface rolling stock used on the London Underground since 2010. Manufactured by Bombardier Transportation's Derby Litchurch Lane Works.
It has replaced all A, C and D stock trains on the network, in order to introduce a standardized train series for all subsurface lines on the network. Two variants are currently in use on London; the S7 (consisting of 7 cars) on the District line, Hammersmith & City line and Circle line, and the S8 (8 cars, and a different seating arrangement) on the Metropolitan line.

Be careful: only the LU S7 can be used like any other train. The S8, because of its length, cannot stop at the stations while drived by AI. Moreover, the plateforms in Simvliet are almost at the exact length of the stock, when in Rijndam these are a little bit longer.
