We're all steamed up at the news. This September a handful of lucky passengers will get to ride a steam train along part of the Metropolitan line.

The nostalgic trips — organised by London Transport Museum — are timetabled for 10 and 11 September, choo-chooing between Amersham, Harrow-on-the-Hill and Wembley Park.

Not only will you get to watch Metro-land roll by from the comfort of a vintage carriage, you'll also be plied with tea, cakes and 1940s tunes.

If you prefer to take the bus, there's a free heritage ride from Amersham station to Amersham Old Town on 11 September. Awaiting you are live bands and performances, market stalls, a children's area and fairgrounds.

Vintage Summer Steam take place 10 and 11 September. Tickets £5-£40.
