On Tuesday 23rd September 2003 The London Transport Museums ran a Special 'Invitation Only' trip on the Piccadilly Line.
The train was transferred from the Museum depot where it normally lives into Ealing Common Depot prior to the trip and I was fortunate enough to be able to get some photos of it.
My good fortune was increased by being given permission by the Museum's staff who were doing the final checks and preparation to climb aboard and I was given 'Carte Blanche' to take as many shots as I liked of whatever I liked.
The gallery reproduced here is, by necessity, very compressed in terms of file sizes compared to the originals, which range between 600kb and 1.6 mb! If you would like copies of any of the full size pictures please contact me and I'll be pleased to share them, but I do retain the copyright, so please ask for permission before publishing them elsewhere.
If any of you managed to get any photos of the trip itself I'd be delighted to receive them and publish them here, appropriately credited of course, so that they can be shared by us all!
