Untangling the TracksThe London Transport Museum looks at the history of the Thameslink train line with its new exhibition, Untangling the Tracks. Tracing the history of the route from 1866 through to the recent £7 billion modernisation programme, the exhibition shows how the line has developed over the years and how modern infrastructure allows for millions of passengers to travel on the route each year - something that would have been an unimaginable feat for the Victorians who founded and ran the original railway. Visitors will be able to discover how the modernisation programme has transformed the route and untangled the tracks, which now run into a completely rebuilt London Bridge station. A number of vintage transport posters also go on display and the exhibition provides the chance to solve and Untangling the Tracks puzzle by navigating trains into the correct platforms.

About London Transport Museum

After a two-year, £22 million refurbishment the London Transport Museum reopened on 22 November 2007 revealing more exhibition space than before. The museum travels back through the 200-year history of public transport, arranged according to several themes: London Transport's famous design heritage, the poster collection, public transport during both World Wars and plans for the capital's development in the twenty-first century.
