Here's your chance to relive the golden days of steam trains on the Underground network.

On the weekend of 9 and 10 September, you can ride a Metropolitan No. 1 steam locomotive and the 1938 art deco tube stock train between Amersham and Harrow-on-the-Hill.

Fortunately, this section of the network is above ground, so you can leave the breathing apparatus at home, and enjoy what's become an annual celebration of the tube of yesteryear.
