When introduced, the 1938-Stock was the most advanced electric tube train in the world.

Take a memorable trip back in time on London Transport Museum’s beautifully restored art-deco train, the 1938 Tube Stock, as it journeys along the Piccadilly Line between Northfields, Heathrow Terminal 4 and Acton Town.

And if a nostalgic jaunt across West London whets your appetite for more transport delights, join us at our Museum Depot over the same weekend, where we are throwing open our doors to the public for a weekend exploring our world-famous transport poster collection!

Steam on the Underground – District 150

As part of our celebrations with Transport for London to celebrate 150 years of the District line, we ran a special Victorian steam train on the Underground for the final time in central London.

On Saturday 22 and Sunday 23 June, commemorative steam-powered journeys between Ealing Broadway and High Street Kensington were run, giving people the opportunity to experience what it would have been like to travel on District line when it first opened on Christmas Eve 1868. 

It was the final time a heritage steam train will travel in central London on the Underground due to the installation of a new signalling system on the Circle, District, Hammersmith & City and Metropolitan lines.
