On the Daily Mail Site there is a selection of Underground photos. Among them is one showing a busker entertaining some people in a "tube" carriage, except the carriage is obviously an ex-LNER buffet car. Some on another forum have asked whether this carriage could have been part of a LT related working, does any one know? Interestingly the end door has a bolt and lock which is not original.
Of course it could have been an ordinary publicity shot taken at a main line station.
According to 'Steam to Silver' the Met Pullman services offered light refreshments including breakfast on the Up morning trains (from Verney Junction) and a light supper on late Down trains from Baker Street, to cater for theatre traffic.

A quick thought on the alleged busker.
There was, in 1957, a skiffle group called Jimmy Miller And The Barbecues, who released a record called Sizzling Hot, produced by the legendary Joe Meek.
Most of the group worked on the railways & regularly performed at Greenford Station. Unfortunately, I can't find any publicity material on them, but there was a pic on the sleeve notes of the CD Joe Meek The Lost Recordings from 2009, which I once had.
Interesting choice of title, given this thread, as was, given this site, another title they did-Freewheelin' Baby.
