I pushed a barrow like those shown, when I worked for the Council ( when I was a lad). Brings back memories - mainly of how i grew to loathe dogs!

and my favourite LT film - How Aldenham works rebuilt RT buses every few years ( it was a BBC2 Colour test film for some time)

Aldenham bus works was originally built as the main Northern Line works on the never completed Edgware to Bushey Heath extension.

As a kid I can remember travelling on the Central Line in standard tube stock with center pillars  in middle of double doors.

What a fantastic little film. Fantastic works facility - really well designed. Illustrates the advantages and efficiencies of process that are possible with a common type. Really enjoyed watching that.

Yes a fascinating film showing how things were done, and I bet that the modern buses can't be dealt with like that ether, also for the oldies the Aldenham works were in the beginning of Cliff Richards "Summer Holiday" film.
