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.
