Heritage Railway: STEAM ON THE METROPOLITAN RAILWAY TUNNELS

Wednesday, January 30th, 2013

TRAIN ARRIVES AT EARLS COURT A steam-hauled passenger train ran through part of the Metropolitan Railway tunnels for the first time since 1905. The rare event, a closely-guarded secret, occurred shortly after 1am on Sunday December 16, as part of the build-up to the 2013 celebrations marking 150 years of the Met. Newly-overhauled Metropolitan Railway 0-4-4T No. 1 is seen arriving at Earl’s Court station to pick up around 30 invited guests, carried in restored Met coach No. 353. The train consisted of Met No. 1, still unlined following its restoration by Bill Parker’s Flour Mill workshops at Bream in the Forest of Dean, followed by the former Weston, Clevedon & Portishead Railway coach, a low-sided wagon carrying spare plastic containers of water, with vintage Met electric Bo-Bo No. 12 Sarah Siddons on the back. For the planned public steam runs over the District and Circle lines on Sundays January 13 and 20, for which demand for the £150-180-a-seat tickets proved so overwhelming that a ballot had to be held, No. 1 and No. 353, which underwent running in trials at the Great Central Railway in November, will be joined by the four-coach Chesham set of wooden-bodied coaches from the Bluebell Railway. ROBIN JONES ARRIVAL AT EDGWARE ROAD ON EASTBOUND LEG Met 1 in the platform at Edgware Road station after arriving from Earls Court. ROBIN JONES SIMMERING AT EDGWARE ROAD This would once have been an everyday occurrence on London Underground. ROBIN JONES STEAM SCULPTURE Waiting
