The first steam train to carry Tube passengers for over 100 years travelled along the track from Earl’s Court to Moorgate, early on Sunday morning in a test run for London Underground’s 150th anniversary celebrations in 2013.
With railwaymen, VIPs and the media on board, the refurbished Met locomotive No1 carried only one first-class Metropolitan 353 carriage.
The train was manufactured in 1892 and has a teak frame, red upholstered seats, huge windows, leather panels and gas light fittings.
The recreated journey went through part of the route of the world’s first Underground journey, from Paddington to Farringdon, on January 9, 1863.
The steam service will run once more in the New Year, forming part of London Underground's anniversary celebrations.
