For the next couple of weekends, Londoners are invited to embrace their inner anorak as once again heritage steam trains charge up and down sections of the Underground.

The locomotives – some dating all the way back to the nineteenth century – will set off from various points on the Metropolitan and Hammersmith and City lines in honour of the latter’s 150th anniversary. Simply choo-choo-choose which time and day suits you and go all misty as you pretend like you’re some suave romantic hero in an old movie.
