The 1995 stock trains were built by GEC Alsthom (later Alstom) at their plant in Washwood Heath, Birmingham, although the bodyshells were manufactured in and imported from Spain. Each train is made up of two three-car units, coupled together, with each unit consisting of a Driving Motor car (DM), a Trailer car (T) and an Uncoupling Non-Driving Motor car (UNDM). The six-car trains are therefore formed DM-T-UNDM+UNDM-T-DM.
The 1995 stock entered service between June 1998 and April 2001, replacing old 1959 Stock and (Mark 1) 1972 Stock.
Since October 2007 1995 stock has been fitted with the royal blue seat moquette used on the 1996 and 1973 stocks. The upgrade was completed in early 2008.

The 1996 stock is the 7-car version used on the Jubilee line.
