Celebrate the Tube's 150th birthday with an underground steam train ride!

Celebrate the Tube’s 150th birthday with an underground steam train ride!

On Sunday 20 January 2013, the newly restored Met Locomotive No. 1 is making a special journey, bringing steam back to the line to celebrate the opening of the world’s first underground.
Met Locomotive No. 1 will pull the beautifully restored Metropolitan Railway ‘Jubilee’ carriage No. 353 (built 1892) and the Chesham set of coaches, on loan from the Bluebell Railway. Metropolitan Railway electric locomotive No. 12 ‘Sarah Siddons’ will also form part of this train.

Tickets (from £50) can be purchased by telephoning the London Transport Museum on 020 7565 7298.

The public may be able to see the train along the route, if they have a valid ticket for general travel on the Underground and if safety allows.
