Your own carriage on Art Deco 1938 Tube train

London Transport Museum emailed me to let us know that they've added and extra item to their Transport charity auction with eBay.

"You will have a special VIP carriage on this train for up to 40 of your closest friends. Dress up and have fun as you are whisked on a journey through the network, earning the admiration and envy of everyone you pass.

Date to be confirmed, but your trip will be either a Saturday or Sunday during the day, between 14 April 2009 and 30 September 2009. The date will be determined by track and service requirements and will be set by Transport for London.

"Your trip involves both departure and return from an agreed point on the Underground route. Route is to be determined by Transport for London.

You are not able to bring any alcoholic beverages on your ride, though feel free to bring other refreshments. Please remember this is a genuine historic vehicle and treat it with respect
." Full details here.

I went on this art deco Tube train in April earlier in year with a few friends and we had a great time.

Bids close on the 15th September, and if you fancy having a bid on anything else, like a behind the scenes tour of the Fen Line, the chance to learn how to drive a First Connect train, a double decker Routemaster bus for the evening, actual London Underground station roundels and more, get clicking!
