Passengers will be transported to a bygone era on a red 1938 Art Deco style vintage train on Saturday 3 and Sunday 4 September on the Metropolitan line. Organised by London Transport Museum, there are a variety of tickets to choose from which must be booked online in advance.
The beautifully restored electrified train is made up of four cars complete with green and red moquette seating, grab handles and distinctive Art Deco light fittings. The 1938 Stock was the first kind of Tube train to have all the electrical equipment underneath the floor, combining the latest technology of the era with quintessential late 1930s style. These trains served London, on several deep-level Tube lines, for half a century.

The Sunday train trips are on the same day as Amersham’s Old Town annual Heritage Day on 4 September which includes children’s funfair rides, classic car displays, a vintage farmers’ market, birds of prey display and heritage bus journeys.
The 1938 Art Deco train stock has not been out on the London Underground system, with passengers on board since spring 2019.
Sam Mullins OBE, Director for London Transport Museum, said: ‘I’m thrilled to have our much-loved 1938 Art Deco train back out on the Metropolitan line once more. We know families, transport enthusiasts and vintage fans really enjoy a day out on the moquette seats. A ride on this beautifully restored design classic train is a real step back in time to a golden age of commuting – make sure you don’t miss out!’.
