Open Weekend

The LT Museum Depot at Acton is open this weekend for the second time this year, and it’s a haven for geeks! What do you mean you’ve never been?

Full details on the LTmuseum website of what to expect – or  here’s Vicki a few of years ago with video of what to expect!

W&C train being refurbished

If you’ve ever visited the London Transport Museum Acton Depot, you’ll have no doubt seen the old Waterloo & City Line carriage that’s been kept – a class 487 train – that’s been salvaged, but is lying dormant with its paint peeling.

Well, peeling no more! We were down the depot last week, and got chatting to the lovely Paul here whose job it is over the next month (“One week per side” he reckons) to paint it and get it looking lovely in its original condition with full Network South East livery.

We even found a superb video online showing the trains still in action.
