Dust off your finest Rayon tea dress: here's a chance to travel back to 1930s Metro-Land.

On Sunday 9 September, super-comely 1938 tube trains will shuttle between Amersham and Harrow-on-the-Hill, along the Metropolitan line.

At Amersham, The Susie Qs — a 1940s close-harmony trio — will purr Andrew's Sisters classics on the station platform. Families can also watch little ones get creative with free children's flag-making craft activities.

Free heritage bus rides will be laid on from Amersham station to Amersham Old Town, where the town's annual Heritage Day will take place — featuring live bands and performances, market stalls and a children's area and fairground.

Prices start at £10 for adults, £7 concessions and £4 for children. Singles and returns will be available, with some journeys calling at Watford, Ruislip and Ealing Common. Tickets go on sale soon: keep an eye on the London Transport Museum site, or call 020 7565 7298 for further info.
