Excellent few hours. I was expecting trainspotters, but I got social history through the mechanics of Transport and also noticed a few trendy urbanites hanging out. It's the new Hoxton, and I think the next open is in September '17 Wrote more on my blog here: https://miketaylstravels.wordpress.com/2017/04/24/london-transport-acton-open-weekend-economic-and-social-history/
An excellent place to visit - normally open two or three weekends per year but at other times to parties by arrangement. Many old vehicles, which cannot normally be displayed at Covent Garden. A brilliant collection of posters and small items.
