For the first time since 1992 and possibly the last time ever, London Transport Museum will be running steam trains to Uxbridge along the Metropolitan line on Sunday 8th December.
Recently restored Metropolitan Locomotive No.1 and the Victorian ‘Jubilee’ carriage 353 will team up for the last time this year in a fitting finale to the 150th anniversary of the London Underground.
These special journeys will take place between Harrow-on-the-Hill and Uxbridge and are a rare opportunity to experience steam along this particular route and the last time this is likely to happen on this section of the line.
Metropolitan Loco No.1 will pull the train from Harrow-on-the-Hill to Uxbridge, while passengers will have the chance to witness the power of a Class 20 diesel on the return leg.
They can choose between travelling on the meticulously restored 1892 ‘Jubilee’ Carriage or London Transport Museum’s 1950s ex-British Rail 4TC coaches.
There will be five trips with prices as below:
- Metropolitan ‘Jubilee’ carriage 353: £25 (Please note that children under the age of 11 are not allowed to travel in the 353 coach)
- Former British Railways 1950s 4TC carriages: £15
The ticket price includes a free limited edition souvenir brochure. To guarantee a seat, tickets can be booked at www.ltmuseum.co.uk and on 0207 565 7298.
