The recently restored Metropolitan Locomotive No.1 and the Victorian ‘Jubilee’ carriage 353 will team up for the last time this year in a grande finale to the 150th birthday of the London Underground.
Five special journeys will take place between Harrow-on-the-Hill and Uxbridge. It's a very rare opportunity to experience steam along this particular route and in all likelihood the last time this will happen on this stretch of the line.
Metropolitan Loco No.1 will pull the train from Harrow-on-the-Hill to Uxbridge, while you'll have the chance to witness the power of a Class 20 diesel on the return leg. You have the choice of making the journey on London Transport Museum’s 1950s ex-British Rail 4TC coaches or the meticulously restored 1892 ‘Jubilee’ carriage.
The video below gives a overview of the restoration of the Jubilee carriage.
There will be five trips with prices as below:
• Metropolitan ‘Jubilee’ carriage 353: £25 (Unfortunately children under the age of 11 aren't allowed to travel in the 353 coach)
• Former British Railways 1950s 4TC carriages: £15
A free limited edition souvenir brochure is included in the price of the ticket. Children under the age of 3 can travel free of charge, but will need to sit on their parent's or guardian’s lap.
