The venerable 1938 era little red tube train will be passing through Central London on Sunday in an increasingly rare visit.

Soon the train wont be able to make the trips* as modern signals wont work with its 80 year old kit, so this is a sight you wont be able to see soon.

This Sunday (17th March), there will be two trips, one in the morning running from Northfields in West London  via South Kensington out to Upminster in the East, and then back again in the afternoon via Baker Street and Wembley.

Tickets to be on board the trains are sold out, but Sunday is still a great chance to be out on the sidelines watching a vintage tube train of the likes not seen anymore doing what it was designed for.

If watching, then as usual, tripods and flash cameras should not be used on London Underground platforms.

This website has been running now for over a decade, and while advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, it doesn't cover the costs. That is why I have set up a facility with DonorBox where you can contribute to the costs of the website and time invested in writing and research for the news articles.

It's very similar to the way The Guardian and many smaller websites are now seeking to generate an income in the face of rising costs and declining advertising.

Whether it's a one-off donation or a regular giver, every additional support goes a long way to covering the running costs of this website, and keeping you regularly topped up doses of Londony news and facts.

If you like what you read on here, then please support the website here.
