On Sunday 19th May, the London Transport Museum will be operating more trips with the 1938 tube stock train – this time on the Piccadilly Line.

The 1938 era tube trains were mainly used on the Northern and Bakerloo lines, with some on the Piccadilly, and yes, of course, some were sent to the Isle of Wight.

It’s a chance to ride in a train from an era of dark wood and deep padded seats with leather armrests.

The museum is offering a choice between two routes: The first runs almost the entire length of the Piccadilly line between Northfields and Oakwood (originally called Enfield West), where you’ll get the chance to alight and take in the imposing 20th century structure inspired by classical architecture.

The second route is a circular journey from Northfields that takes you around the Heathrow loop, which opened in 1984, adding a modern flavour to this heritage journey.

Journey details:

  • Journey 1 Northfields – Oakwood – Northfields
  • Journey 2 Northfields – Heathrow T4, 1, 2 & 3 – Northfields
  • Journey 3 Northfields – Heathrow T4, 1, 2 & 3 – Northfields


Journey 1 Adults £35; Concessions (including Friends) and Children: £25

Journeys 2 & 3 Adults £25; Concessions (including Friends) and Children: £20.

Further details are expected to posted on the Museum website on Tuesday 23rd April.

Bookings will open at 2pm on Wednesday 24th April on the London Transport Museum’s website.

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.
