Chance to take a trip in a 1938 tube train

The venerable art-deco 1938 tube train will be out and about again later this month as part of the Rickmansworth Festival.

One of the best preserved tube trains it is slightly reminiscent of a bygone age and has been wonderfully restored to its current condition.

If you went to the Aldwych Station blitz tours, that was the train they parked inside the station – while regular readers will know I have travelled on it a few times before.
