If your a transport enthusiast and you left the LT Museum in London's Covent Garden/West End feeling shortchanged and harrassed by running screaming children then the chances are you should have came here. Granted, it's only open certain times of the year but this is where the best stuff is and is cheaper to get in as well! It's a veritable Aladdins cave and treasure trove of London Transport Buses, Trams, Trolleybuses, Tubes and every artifact you can think of. Many gleaming under the spotlights and many, sadly, still awaiting restoration and in various states of decay. Downstairs on the main floor is where all of the tube trains and buses etc are kept, upstairs you will find rows and rows of maps, destination boards and signs, some going back over 100 years. They probably need to work a little bit on presentation as some of it is a bit haphazard. And more care needs to be taken to show off the Tube Trains in their glory instead of hiding a lot of their lines and angles with wooden platforms and other such 'stuff'. And the hiding away of FRM1, arguably one of the rarest and most important exhibits here, into a corner against a wall where you can't get a decent picture of it is just bizarre! Though you could argue that this place is more a depot/very large store room than an actual museum so that's why these things stand out. But it's well worth a visit!
