Yesterday i attended the Cab It! event at the London Transport Museum's Acton Depot. What is this? Well a chance to get into the cabs of the various historic tube trains (or to be more precise tube trains and sub-service stock) and find out how to drive them, what the various controls do and what not. All in all i was able to access 9 different types of train and had a great day.
I don't think i'm ready to drive one yet but at least i have some basic idea which knob and lever does what! It was a really great event at the museum and if it is held again i can't recommend it enough. You can see my photos here.
