Tomorrow (Sunday 15th May), as mentioned before, one of the last remaining 1967 era tube trains that have served the Victoria Line will make a farewell tour around the network.

All the seats to be on the train have been sold – but you can stand by to see a Victoria Line train in places they have never been seen before – specifically the Picadillly, Metropolitan and District Lines.

For those of you who want to be out to see this relic invading train tracks it shouldn’t be seen on – below is a GUESS as to the times it will pass various locations.

The times in RED are the only confirmed times – everything else is a GUESS based on the train timetables – so allow a decent amount of time either side if you want to watch/photograph.

Important, if photographing/lingering on the platforms – do not use a camera flash or tripod otherwise you will attract the ire of the station staff.

Twitter users – I will try to broadcast as we pass key stations above ground using the #67tube hashtag.

The ianVisits website has been running now for just over a decade, initially as a news blog, later adding the events listings guide to the offbeat and geeky events in London.

Advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, but 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 its a one-off donation or a regular giver, every additional support goes a long way to covering the running costs of the ianVisits website, and keeping you regularly topped up doses of Londony news and facts.

If you like what IanVisits provides, then please support the website here.

Thank you

    I will be on this tomorrow (2nd carriage). I can’t believe the amount of running time allocated to it though – Ealing Broadway to Seven Sisters is about 55 minutes but this run has just about double that! :O

      Well, I am not sure when they leave Ealing Broadway – so a half hour turnaround makes it more sensible.
