The annual Rickmansworth Festival is in a couple of weeks time, and as usual, the London Transport Museum will be there with vintage buses to ferry people between Rickmansworth Station and the Festival at Batchworth Lock.
Also, the restored 1938 era tube train — complete with adverts from the 1980s when it was withdrawn from service — will be offering trips along the Metropolitan Line.
There will be four trips offered, and the price quoted is per adult, and the ticket allows up to 3 children to go free.
Book tickets via the LTM website or you can pick up any unsold seats on the day.
Long term readers will know I am rather keen on these vintage trips, even if only to watch the looks of astonishment from people on the platforms as the “wrong train” pulls in to the station – and then departs without collecting anyone.

Book tickets via the LTM website.
They usually have the Sarah Siddons electric locomotive there as well, and the LTM website was mentioning that until today, so I presume something is unhappy with the electrics.
