A relief from the prices that steam trains have to charge for trips, as a 1950s vintage trains offers affordable runs along part of the Metropolitan line in September.

Travel in vintage style through suburbia on 1950s ex-British Rail 4TC coaches, hauled by Sarah Siddons electric locomotive and a Class 20 locomotive.

Tickets cost just £10 for standard class return and £15 for first class return. Children  3-16 (Under 3 free – no ticket)

Relive the 1950s as you board the heritage train and enjoy the special atmosphere at Amersham station, where you can mingle with costumed characters and browse a pop-up Museum shop.

The trips take place between Wembley Park and Amersham on 7th and 8th September.

Also, on Sunday 8 September only, courtesy of the LTM Friends, you’ll also be able to enjoy free heritage rides up to Amersham Old Town, where the annual Heritage Day is taking place.

SUPPORT THIS WEBSITE

This website has been running now for just over a decade, and while 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 this website, and keeping you regularly topped up doses of Londony news and facts.

If you like what your read on here, then please support the website here.

Thank you

    Well, well, congratulations LTM/TfL. Judging by the lack of the great reaction which has come with the announcement of these events on IanVisits in the past, it would appear that the price for this jolly is well balanced.
    Yes, this is a tiny straw poll and reasons aplenty tumble from every direction to prove whatever whomever wants to prove. Nevertheless I thought that there’d be some grateful acknowledgement of/response to the high cost of the previous trips being chopped back by TfL/LTM.

    Maybe the indignant are away from their screens, maybe I’ve read too much into the perceived price drop, maybe I should stop my blathering right now.

    Am I missing something here? The single price is £15, but the return is £10????
