Vintage Summer Steam
We are very sorry to inform you that London Transport Museum has taken the difficult decision to cancel the scheduled Vintage Summer Steam train trips on the weekend of 10 and 11 September on the Metropolitan line due to the threat of planned industrial action which is beyond our control.
Heritage events like these involve a great deal of forward planning and preparation. Therefore, even if the proposed industrial action is called off before the 10 and 11 September, both the Museum and London Underground will not have enough time to reinstate the operational and logistical resources required to run such a large scale event at short notice.
While we realise that customers will be disappointed about the cancellation of the steam trips, we want to ensure that ticket holders have enough time to make alternative plans for their weekend. London Transport Museum will be offering refunds to all those who have purchased a ticket.
It is with much regret that we have had to take a very difficult decision to cancel these popular yearly steam train trips and we would like to once again apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.
Refunds will be made automatically back into your account within 7 to 10 days. Please contact our bookings team on tel: +44 (0)20 7565 7298 or email [email protected] if for any reason you have not received your refund.
Date: Saturday 10 and Sunday 11 September 2016
Location: Amersham, Wembley Park and Harrow-on-the-Hill
Prices: Various (see below)
Travel back in time and join us for a nostalgic journey on the beautifully restored Met No.1 steam train. And for a late summer treat, combine this with tea and cake from bespoke tea party organisers ‘Jam and Tea’, who will be popping-up at Amersham station, creating a vintage tea experience complete with music from the 1940s, bunting and china tea cups.
