Event Details

An event hosted by Kerry Cassidy, Driver, Great Western Railway

The team at Great Western Railway’s Laira Traction & Rolling Stock Maintenance Depot are offering members of the IRO a rare opportunity to visit the depot and gain an appreciation into the world of depot operations and traction maintenance of GWR’s fleet.
