Crystal Palace FC co-owner Jeremy Hosking is a prominent collector of vintage steam trains and we are delighted to be able to announce that Jeremy is organising a steam train journey to and from Southampton for our final league game of the 2015/2016 season on Sunday May 15th 2016.
It is planned that the train will be hauled by the recently restored “Battle of Britain Class” locomotive “Lord Dowding” which was built in 1946 and served on the Southern Railway until taken out of service in 1967. This locomotive was named after the Commanding Officer of RAF Fighter Command during the Battle of Britain who is credited with having played a crucial role in Britain's aerial defence and, consequently, the defeat of Hitler’s plans to invade Britain in World War Two.
Return tickets from London to Southampton Central station are priced between £216-242, see below, (inc VAT) and include your match ticket, light refreshments on the outward journey and dinner on the return journey. Alan Pardew and the Crystal Palace squad will travel on the train back from Southampton.
Due to popular demand the tickets for the Steam Train to Southampton are now sold out and we are now currently operating a waiting list for season ticket holders and paid members on a first come first serve basis should further tickets become available, please call the box office on 08712 000071 if you would like to be added to that list.
Combined match ticket + train ticket, only limited places available.
Wednesday 20th April: Open to all season ticket holders and paid members, no loyalty points required. 1 match ticket and 1 train ticket per person
