Photos from 1967 Tube Stock's Last Tour

On Sunday 15th May number of London Underground enthusiasts got to travel on the last* of the 1967 Tube stock before it gets put into pasture. It was a mammoth 6 hour tour and I really don't like Tubes enough to stay on them that long.
IanVisits has written a post about the whole experience.

Browsing through the London Tube Flickr group I spotted some lovely pictures of unexpected details taken by Antje (aka Trowbridge Estate) on the tour.

*OK Not technically the last. From IanVisits who reported that Victoria Line Manager, John Doyle "was able to confirm that the last 67 Stock to run along the whole line will be on Friday 27th May as engineering works mean they can’t travel past Seven Sisters after that date, but a few will still ply their trade along the rest of the line for a couple more weeks.

The very last train ever on any part of the line will be around the middle of June. Was supposed to be the end of June/start July, but engineering works means they are probably going to bring the final trip forward. Details to be confirmed

A quick reminder that there are still places left on this Sunday's (22nd May) 1938 Tube Tour. London Transport Museum said tickets can no longer be purchased online as postal delivery cannot be guaranteed in time for the event. However, tickets can still be booked via the booking office on 0207 565 7298 and collected on the day from Harrow on the Hill (until 10:30), Amersham and Rickmansworth. Tickets may also be purchased in person on the day from those stations.
