A tube train built in 1938 and restored to its art-deco original interior will be returning to the London Underground for the May bank holiday.
The 1938 Stock was the first kind of tube train to have all of the electrical equipment underneath the floor, combining the latest technology of the era with quintessential late 1930s style.
The trips will be available on three days from Sat 29th April to Mon 1st May 2023.
The route for this event is between Acton Town and Uxbridge (return).
There are four return journeys per day:
- Saturday: 10:15am, 11:54am, 1:47pm and 3:27pm
- Sunday: 10:15am, 11:54am, 1:46pm and 3:26pm
- Monday: 10:15am, 11:54am, 1:47pm and 3:27pm
Each return journey lasts around an hour and 15 minutes.
Stewards will be on board the train throughout the journey.
There is no reserved seating for this event, but you can choose a car: Pink, Orange, Yellow or Blue.
The Pink car will be at the front of the train when leaving Acton, the Blue train will be at the front on the return journey.
