Unexpected – as the poor thing has been rather ill recently – but the lovingly restored 1938 era tube train will be taking trips along the tube network in a couple of weeks time, and you can be on it.

Inside the carriages - 2

I’ve been on it quite a few times in the past – and it is a lovely trip to take, not just for the train itself with its art-deco interior and 1980s adverts still in place, but also the joy of watching stunned passengers on the platforms as you pass various stations in the old train.

There are five trips on Sunday 12th September.

£25 – 8:50 Ealing Broadway to Harrow on the Hill

£25 – 10:26 Harrow on the Hill to Amersham (via the North Curve!)

£15 – 11:30 Amersham to Watford and back again

£20 – 12:57 Amersham to Harrow of the Hill and back again

£20 – 14:30 Amersham to Harrow on the Hill

You also get free trips on the lovely Sarah Siddons, subject to spare seats being available (normally costs £5).

All tickets should be purchased in advance through the Online Ticket Office online (warning – based on previous experience, use Microsoft Internet Explorer to book tickets) or over the phone on 020 7565 7298.

In addition, free heritage bus service will run every 15 minutes between Amersham Old Town and Amersham station.  This service will link you to the variety of activities taking place as part of their Heritage Day, between 11am and 5pm.

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.

Thank you

    Managed to get a ticket, had to use google chrome as IE8 and Firefox showed payment errors. Many Thanks for this information.

    That looks wonderful! If I were in London, would do it in a heartbeat! Thanks for posting this one

  3. Ronnie says:

    Just noticed that ticket website have removed all of the trips, I hope they have not been axed.

  4. IanVisits says:

    They’ve probably sold out.

  5. Sadly, this event has been cancelled – had a call from a lady at LT 🙁

    Bet it’s the usual Met Line engineering saga to blame…

    • IanVisits says:

      Err – nope.

      It’s because both the trains have developed faults that can’t be repaired in time.
