Following the announcement that Crystal Palace FC co-owner Jeremy Hosking was organising a steam train journey to and from Southampton for our final league game of the 2015/2016 season on Sunday May 15th 2016, return tickets for this historic trip were sold out within 20 minutes of going on sale.
We are now pleased to announce that an additional carriage of 42 seats is now available for the outward leg only – London to Southampton. This carriage is configured with tables of 4 and tables of 2.
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.
