Countdown to Another Metro Gnome ?

April 22, 2018  •  Leave a Comment

Only One week to go to 20227's follow up to the London Underground Railtour 1994's 'MetroGnome'. At the time this now classic tour was the first main line passenger tour hauled by a preserved diesel, running on London Transport lines from Wembley Park visiting Amersham, Watford, Rickmansworth and Uxbridge assisted by Met Line Electric Loco Sarah Siddons.

Since then Class 20's have regularly appeared assisting on 'Steam on The Met' Specials and on stock delivery trains. However the only other 'Metro Gnome' in 20 years has been a club night in Leeds, ironically playing 'Underground' music... 

Hopefully, the Diesel special to Quainton will be as spectacular as the 'MetroGnome' Tour, with the chance to cover both TfL and Network Rail Chiltern Lines, with 20227 working with 20142 and 33012 traveling for the first time on London Underground Lines. Whether it lives up the Club Night in Leeds...
