Watch the 1967 tube train make its farewell tour

Tomorrow (Sunday 15th May), as mentioned before, one of the last remaining 1967 era tube trains that have served the Victoria Line will make a farewell tour around the network.

All the seats to be on the train have been sold – but you can stand by to see a Victoria Line train in places they have never been seen before – specifically the Picadillly, Metropolitan and District Lines.

For those of you who want to be out to see this relic invading train tracks it shouldn’t be seen on – below is a GUESS as to the times it will pass various locations.

The times in RED are the only confirmed times – everything else is a GUESS based on the train timetables – so allow a decent amount of time either side if you want to watch/photograph.

Important, if photographing/lingering on the platforms – do not use a camera flash or tripod otherwise you will attract the ire of the station staff.

Twitter users – I will try to broadcast as we pass key stations above ground using the #67tube hashtag.

    I will be on this tomorrow (2nd carriage). I can’t believe the amount of running time allocated to it though – Ealing Broadway to Seven Sisters is about 55 minutes but this run has just about double that! :O

      Well, I am not sure when they leave Ealing Broadway – so a half hour turnaround makes it more sensible.
