DamonHearne House is named after Martin Hearne, an LT/LUL engineer. It seems to contain the supporting offices to Maxwell house and Test House which are on the same site. Data recorded by the Track recording train is analysed here too and data from ordinary passenger trains fitted with track monitoring equipment. They seem to be quite a bunch of engineers that can sort out anything and can manufacture most things that are otherwise unobtainable. They also do some groovy stuff with a 3D printer. A very slick place and well worth a visit if they do any future tours.Wed 29/04/2015, 20:29
DamonDuring visits to this site at the recent Depot open weekend it was stated that Maxwell House gets its name from being a brown building like the instant coffee! We think this is a myth as LT had two Senior engineers with the name Maxwell. Maxwell House is home to the Electrical Equipment Testing and Development Section. Staff working there also undertake specialist repairs.Wed 29/04/2015, 20:22
