Orbital Lego exhibition coming to London – Sunday 15 to Sunday 22 February

Breakthrough: Crossrail’s tunnelling story now on at The London Transport Museum until 30 August 2015
The exhibition brings to life the sheer scale of the work being done to deliver Crossrail, the new railway that will bring a 10 per cent increase to the city’s rail capacity. Visitors will experience the tunnel environment, learn how Crossrail is burrowing under London, play interactive tunnelling games and hear the first hand experiences of those who work underground. The exhibition features a large, five metre high, walk-through installation of a cross-section of a Crossrail tunnel to allow visitors to experience what it might be like to stand in a tunnel, which is under construction deep underground. The tunnel will contain a computer simulation of a giant boring machine in action, just like the one being used to dig Crossrail’s tunnels. Crossrail’s tunnel network will be joined up for the first time in Spring when Tunnel machine Elizabeth reaches Farringdon in the big East-West breakthrough.
