Watch YouTube footage of a London Underground steam train. Some of LU's original steam trains will be restored as part of its 150-year anniversary celebrations.
The age of steam will return to the railways to mark the 150th anniversary of the Tube.
A series of specially restored trains will re-enact the first Tube journey - from Paddington to Farringdon - on January 13.
Trains that will run will include the 1892-built Metropolitan Railway Jubilee Carriage No 353 - the oldest in existence - which is being restored with support from the Heritage Lottery fund.
The January journeys are part of a series of events, including heritage rail trips, which celebrate the 150th anniversary of the beginning of the London Underground (LU).
Two new £2 coins issued by the Royal Mint will go into circulation next year to mark the anniversary.
