The Docklands Light Railway is to get a short trial of private tourist trains, running between Tower Gateway and Greenwich.
For track bashers, the trips are also an unusual route, as trains from Tower Gateway do not usually head down towards Greenwich, so it’s a modest bit of novelty.
The special non-stop trains will run at weekends from 4th August to 9th September, and will include a tour guide on board, who may or may not look like this.
The trips then continue with a thirty-minute guided walking tour around Greenwich.
Trains will depart on the hour every hour, starting at 10am each day, with the last tour leaving Tower Gateway at 5pm. Tickets for the DLR Discovery train are £8 for adults and £4 for children and include a return journey on the DLR.
These can be purchased here.
Note, the T&Cs say that you need to turn up 20 minutes before departure.
Of course, for everyone else, the real fun will be waiting on the platforms and watch the look on people’s faces as trains pass through the stations without stopping.
