Historic Tube carriages and London buses which date back more than a century will be brought back into service this weekend for an open day at the London Transport Museum Depot in Acton.
More than 370,000 objects are on display at the warehouse in Gunnersbury Lane, including old models and photographs, original posters and uniforms. Visitors can also take trips on stream and electric trains around a miniature railway, and on an electric tram imported from the Isle of Wight.
Transport expert and author Christian Wolmar will give two talks each afternoon about his new book, Engines of War, and his previous work Subterranean Railway.
Other highlights include a model of a fictitious Underground station over four levels, and a tiny recreation of a typical suburb crammed with houses shops, cinemas, blocks of flats and stations.
Tickets are valid on both days and cost £10 for adults, £8 for senior citizens, £6.50 concessions and £5 for London Transport Museum Friends. Children under 16 get in free.
To book ahead call 020 7565 7298 or visit ltmuseum.co.uk. The museum is open from 11am to 7pm on Saturday and Sunday, with the last admission at 4pm.
