After an absence of a few years, this September offers a chance to ride in the delightful little 1938 era tube train. The one with wooden windows, deep seats, art-deco lamp shades, and all those old fashioned adverts.
On Sunday 9th September, the 1938 Tube stock train will run trips on the Metropolitan line between Amersham and Harrow-on-the-Hill.
A retro housewife in 1940s garb will be greeting visitors at the station, helping to bring the era to life.
There are also free heritage bus rides from Amersham station to Amersham Old Town where the town’s annual Heritage Day will take place, with live bands and performances, market stalls and a children’s area and fairground.
Train tickets will soon be available for the following journeys:
Exact times for the above journeys are yet to be confirmed. Prices will start at £10 for adults, £7 concessions and £4 for children aged 4 to 14, while 3 year-olds and under go free on laps. 15 to 17 year-olds travel at the concession rate.
Tickets go on sale shortly here.
