*Online exclusive price!*

Product Details: High quality coated ceramic mug featuring illustration commissioned by the London Transport Museum.

Dimensions: 7.9 x 8.8cm

About the Illustration: At the time the Metropolitan line A stock train was introduced in 1960, London Transport did not commission an illustration of its new fleet.

50 years later, and with the demise of the type of train from public service, London Transport Museum commissioned two illustrations to redress the omission.

The Metropolitan line serves outer north west London suburbs as well as the more distant towns of Amersham and Chesham in Buckinghamshire, and the trains were designed with these longer journeys in mind with higher speed capability, high back seats and luggage racks (which London Transport Museum are now selling)

The Night illustration depicts an A stock train in the latest London Underground livery passing through the hills and open country associated with the outer reaches of the Metropolitan line under a starry canopy in the twilight of the day, and of the train’s life.
