Vehicles on the Move 2012 - The Art Deco Special
Date: Sunday 9 September 2012
Toot toot! The Art Deco Special is back! Celebrate Amersham Heritage Open Day with our very own 38 stock tube train and the Sarah Siddons locomotive. The trains will be running throughout the day between Harrow-on-the-Hill, via Rickmansworth to Amersham. There will be heritage buses, including the Museum’s iconic Routemaster RM1, making journeys between Amersham Station and Amersham town. Show your heritage train ticket for free entry to the Amersham Museum.
This year we’re repeating our popular vintage attire competition: take inspiration from our Art Deco style trains, and come dressed to impress. The best dressed passenger wins 2 tickets to Project X, the exciting new immersive theatre experience.
To enter, simply come along to the heritage train run decked out in your finest, take a photo of yourself on one of our trains, and upload it to our Vehicles on the Move Flickr group by 9am on Monday 17 September. The winners will be announced on Monday 24 September.
Check out our online collection for inspiration, get yourself dressed Art Deco style, and head to Amersham for a trip down the Metropolitan line and back in time. All aboard!
This year we’ve teamed up with our near neighbour, Radio Days based in Lower Marsh Street beside Waterloo. Why not get your costume sorted there before heading out to Amersham? Visit the shop with your heritage train ticket to receive a 10% discount on clothing at Radio Days.
