A new and exciting exhibition opens its doors on 8th October 2013 in London at the Crystal. Presented by engineering experts Siemens in conjunction with London Transport Museum and media specialists CBS Outdoor UK, 'Going Underground: Our journey to the future' will showcase future developments for metro-style trains and stations. At the heart of the exhibition will be a full-size mock up of a brand new concept metro train – the Siemens Inspiro. A mix of interactive exhibits on display - housed in a temporary 'station' building - will focus on technologies to help travellers find their way more easily, electronic ticketing developments, passenger information systems and station management solutions. "Going Underground" is free to enter and will be open for a three month period. It will be located on the site of The Crystal in Royal Victoria Docks, London.
