Notes :
(1) Neil Edwards comments: Organised via London's Transport Museum, to commemorate the closing of the East London Line on the 22nd December, prior to it's conversion to London Overground, the preserved 1938 tube stock was used to operate a railtour over the system. It was also an opportunity to allow passengers to traverse St Mary's Curve, which is normally only used for stock transfers. A very well organised event.
