Depot Open Weekend: Secrets of the UndergroundThe London Transport Museum Depot in Acton hosts one of its popular Open Weekends in April, this time taking the theme Secrets of the Underground. One of the few occasions when the west London depot is open to the public, the event is a rare opportunity to see inside the working depot and will offer a programme of talks, interactive displays, tours and family activities. Hear stories from Hidden London, the museum's hugely popular series of disused Underground stations; listen to historian Oliver Green as he reveals the story behind the Kingsway Tramway Subway; and get a behind the scenes look at Crossrail, with talks about designing for underground spaces and stories from the engineers. There will also be miniature train layouts, family crafts, quirky artefacts, and street food and refreshments.
