The London Underground, created in Victorian times, is the oldest and possibly the most awesome sub-terranean transport system to be developed over the last 130 years. As well as being the fastest way to get around our capital city, the London Underground has been used for wartime shelters and operations rooms. With its 255 miles of trackway, and tunnels dating back to the 1880s, maintaining such a complex transport infrastructure is no mean feat.
This week, we welcome Paul, G8YMM who will present a talk about what goes on behind the scenes to make the London Underground run, and the engineering of this complex network of trackways.
Start : 7:30pm
Savernake Street, Swindon.
