Just to confirm that the depot opens at 1100 on both days - there seem to be some conflicting reports on this. Displays should include ''D'' stock (with a tour underneath the thing), ''C'' stock, '38 tube stock, a Battery Loco, Steam Loco L99, ''S'' stock mock up, and more. There's also a ''Q'' stock car from the LTM to see. Buses are running on the 248 provided by the LTM (RM1), The London Bus Co. and East London with Ensign running an RLH (I think) on the 248A giving the photo opportunity of an RLH going under a low bridge! Some of the buses have first and last jouneys starting/finishing at Romford.
I'm working as a volunteer on Sunday so will see you all there!

I understand that this will now be on the Saturday AND the Sunday but NOT the Monday. Once again this event is still UNCONFIRMED.

I thought I should mention that this is still a ''proposed open day''. Not yet confirmed. I also notice that I have yet to add a function to move forum postings from one topic to another. Cos this one should presumably be under Events! Ho hum.
