Also on display will be the restored Metropolitan Line 353 carriage which again was part of the 150th anniversary celebrations of the London Underground.
Model displays will feature miniatures of the Met No.1, and a Lego fans will be kept happy with a representation of Baker Street in 1863. You can have a footplate ride on Ffestiniog Railway’s 150 year old steam engine Prince.
There's also steam rides on the Acton Miniature Railway, film
screenings, hands on workshops where you can get the opportunity to make
your own model steam train, talks, and book signings.
More details on the open weekend here. It's always an extremely popular weekend as the queues for the event often snake back to Acton Town Tube station. With a chance to see the steam train up close I imagine this weekend will be busier than usual.
I've been to the weekends there several times and spent hours pottering around the Museum’s collection. There's over 400,000 objects at the Depot including signs, vehicles, old ticket machines, station clocks, small objects, posters and more.
