Notes :
(1) Stock went to Stamore depot during lunch break, then travelled ECS to Canons Park to start Trip 2.
(2) Passengers holding tickets for Trips 2 AND 3 were allowed to remain on board between Wembley Park & Neasden, as this was the only way to be on both trips.

Taken from information letter :
Russell Priest organised this trip along with the help of Seth Anderson-Crook. They are both currently Apprentices working for London Underground & working alongside the London transport museum to make this event happen! In February 2008, London Underground’s Operational Apprentices are hoping to travel to Eskdale in Cumbria to carry out restoration work in aid of the Outward Bound Trust. The Outward Bound Trust is an educational charity that inspires young people to fulfil their potential through challenging outdoor experiences, raising self-esteem and preparing them to face the future with confidence. In order to raise a significant proportion of the money required for the apprentices to travel to Eskdale and carry out this work, we are organising special train trips using the London Transport Museum’s 1938 stock unit. By running these special trains, the Apprentices will have raised a large amount of the money required in order for us to visit Eskdale and carry out our work. In addition It will also raise more awareness of the Operational Apprentice scheme and demonstrate the ability of London Underground’s young people to organise and deliver high profile events, and demonstrate London Underground’s fulfilment of its corporate responsibility. The London Transport Museum will also benefit because it will raise public awareness of their restoration work of heritage trains, as well as gaining publicity for the 1938 stock unit. Importantly, it will also serve as a fun day out for families and enthusiasts alike, who will be able to travel on a working piece of London Underground’s history and visit a part of the network which is no longer regularly accessible to passengers.
