The next two pictures show the scale of the models, and not an invasion of giants over London:
These models (by Metro Models) were featured on the last TV series of The Tube and they were incredibily detailed and obviously painstakingly researched and created.
This was my first time at the Museum Depot at Acton and I was amazed at how crowded it was. Admittedly there were a large collection of men there who could be only be described as errr, ...... trainspotters who were poring over the models and stalls selling photographs of trains, buses and railways, and old timetables. However, I was as geeky as everyone else at the end of the day and spent some time buying old books on railway ghosts, a cheesy looking horror story / thriller set on the railway, a social guide to trainspotters and a double sided, 1,000 piece jigsaw puzzle of Waterloo station during the 2nd World War and post war time for just three quid!
Me and Neil also bumped into fellow Tube Relief Challenger, Chris Preswell, who was leaving as we arrived, and regular commenter Fimb and her husband - pictures from him here. Fimb managed to out geek us all by asking the guys in the shop intricate questions about a particular model bus series she is collecting.
