Something similar in the depot yard once.We were bored
I travelled on one of these at the weekend. The novelty value was quickly surpassed by the terror at how much we were thrown around when it picked up any speed - apparently due to worn bearings.You won't be seeing these for much longer on the Island of Wight. These 1938 Metropolitan underground trains will be withdrawn at the end of the year, new track will be laid and they getting new old trains, refurbished District Line trains that will be battery operated.

Could never get these to work. But I am reminded that me and me mate used to set fire to plastic toy soldiers - the sound the dripping plastic made was amazing, particularly when dropped into water. And you then got soldiers with hideous twisted 'war injuries' - we ended up with a 'Hiroshima' battalion.
