1938 Art Deco Tube train outing Sunday 20 April 2008

Thanks to a colleague I've just learnt that this Sunday the fab
London Tranpsort Museum are arranging a number of special trips on 1938 stock train. The trains leave Ealing Common station at 11.07am, 1.07pm and 3.07pm. The round trip takes approximately 1 hour and 20 minutes.

"The elegant interior, with varnished wood, red and green finishes and art deco lampshades, has a warm and cosy appearance."

Tickets cost £26 (£22 for concessions) and must be booked in advance on 0207 565 7298.

I may well try to go along to this as I don't live far from Ealing and I LOVE the general 1920's 1930's Poirot era so it would be a great opportunity for some pictures and that "luxury" Orient Express feel.

May also be nice for Kris & her son who are flying over from Hawaii (weirdly enough the setting of the film Forgetting Sarah Marshall) today, so will see if they are up for it too.

Update - they are on for it so the three of us will be going on Sunday - really looking forward to it. We'll be on the 3.07pm train. Plus I must say a massive thanks to the Community side of the London Transport Museum who gave me one free ticket for this for helping to arrange the Flickr meetup there.

PS: Next week I will do a full update post from our Flickr Mini LT Museum Meet Up & mini competition at the museum, as they winning photos are now on the museum's website.
