On the first weekend of September, passengers can be transported to a bygone era on a red 1938 Art Deco style vintage train on the Metropolitan line from Amersham to Watford and Harrow-on-the-Hill.
The train has been beautifully restored, and has four cars complete with green and red moquette seating, grab handles, and distinctive Art Deco light fittings.
The 1938 stock was the first kind of Tube train to have all its electrical equipment underneath the floor and combined the latest technology of the era with quintessential late-1930s style. These trains served London, on several deep-level Tube lines, for half a century, but have not been out on the London Underground system, with passengers on board since spring 2019.
