Good Morning everyone! This is my first posting, and thank you Dennis for the invitation. I'll write in English, since it is still my mother tongue, but will be happy to continue in German where necessary or desired.
On a visit to the UK in 1989, I collected a hire car at Heathrow and set off for Hampshire. First of all though, I thought I'd visit Shepperton studios, just to see what was going on. Using a little white lie I drove in, parked up, and generally wandered about. Wonderful stuff! They were making Henry the Vth and, elsewhere, Erik the Viking. I bumped into various actors, walked through crowds, looked into those huge studio buildings, wandered through shops offering all manner of props, etc, but what caught my eye was this piece of London Transport rolling stock, 21147, parked opposite the crowd dressing rooms for Henry.
I believe it was also being used as a dressing room, but has anyone seen it since? Just curious.
Ich bin ein großer Fan der Londoner Underground ... (mein Ursprung meines UK Eisenbahnhobbys!)
das ist einer der Wagen der an die moderneren R-Stock der District (Aluminiumaufbau) lackiert wurde (damit diese etwas stimmig ist!) ... so ein Original Aluminiumwagen steht im Acton Works des LT Museums!
