London Transport Museum Depot in Acton aims to Act-on It as it goes for a Green theme

Acton’s London Transport Museum Depot opposite Acton Town station has announced a green theme for its summer weekender. The ‘Act-on It’ Open Days take place from Saturday 2 July to Sunday 3 July which also coincides with London Climate Action Week.

The Act-on It! Depot Open Days are part of London Transport Museum’s Climate Crossroads 18-month programme which looks at sustainable cities, travel, transport and greener skills for the future.

Visitors will be able to get face to face with both old forms of transport with an iconic RMI Routemaster built in 1954 being shown for the first time through to new transport with a high-tech Route 63 bus that feature USB chargers for passengers and better accessibility for disabled people.

Among the events going on during the two day weekender are storytelling sessions, interactive games and things to make including vehicles out of recycled materials.

On display throughout the Depot, visitors will be able see miniature transport displays made entirely of LEGO and meet the creators.

Visitors of all ages can also try their hand at being a train operator in the museum’s Victoria Line driving cab and see two Q stock Tube cars dating from the 1930s which are currently being resorted to their former glory.

Timed tickets to visit the London Transport Museum Depot ‘Act-on It’ Open Days must be booked in advance online. Adult tickets cost £15 and tickets for children cost £7.50. Kids aged 3 and under go free. Concessions are available for residents of Ealing To book click here
