Transports of delight

Whilst I don’t consider myself to meet the anoraky trainspottery stereotype, my dad’s passion for mechanical engineering has obviously had an influence on me (unless it’s in my shorts). I’ve spent two very happy Saturdays discovering more about London transport and the modern history of the mighty metropolis at London Transport Museum in Covent Garden, and at their Depot in Acton Town.

Having enjoyed an afternoon at the main Covent Garden museum with Phil who took most of these photos, I rendezvoused with Tom and Barney yesterday lunchtime for a day Down at Depot rounded off with Barney and I taking the tube and the train and the bus back to Crouch End (via the Model Shop in Holborn…..). Some of these photos are Barney’s.
