Default LT museum depot today and this weekend

I see the depot is open this weekend (21-22 Oct), offering miniature
train rides among other things.

I saw two low-loaders, with loose rails on them, backing out around
noon today. Presumably they had delivered miniature trains, though
they were big enough to carry full-sized ones.

Eek, glad I saw this, Colin! For some reason I had the next weekend
(28/29 October) marked in my diary. Has the date been changed at some
point (I can't remember entering it but it would have been a long time
ago) or is my memory playing tricks?

As it happens, I might just be able to get there on Saturday afternoon,
as I have a tour of Maidenhead [1] to do in the morning. As I'll have
a car, does anyone have any advice where I might park in West London
coming in from the M4 for easiest tube access to Acton in the afternoon?

[1] Bizarre I know but you might be surprised.......

Osterley (on the Piccadilly Line) is on the A4 -- leave the M4 at
junction 3. The car park costs 2 on Saturdays, according to TfL.

Definitely not the miniature trains. I know, cos one of them is still in
my garage :-).

I believe the plan is to have 2-train operation on the depot miniature
railway this weekend, with my 1938TS and a Metropolitan 'A'-class steam
loco in operation.

The railway's new extension and passing loop should also be in use.

Hope to see some of the group there, remember to bring the kids!
