Event Details

A presentation by Paul Burkhalter

The IRO South West and Wales Area Council are pleased to announce the next event in our 2018 events programme.

Please meet on the Concourse at Plymouth Station at 1715 where a member of the IRO South West & South Wales will be on hand to escort you to the talk location.

Travelling through Plymouth you can’t help but notice all the seemingly disused tracks and cuttings that once ran to somewhere long forgotten. Over 80 such independent railways and tramways have existed and are documented in a new book, Plymouth’s Hidden Railways. The author, Paul Burkhalter will be giving an hour long presentation on the book and taking questions. The book contains a wealth of information illustrated with photographs and maps, and is the product of 25 years of research.
Copies will be available to purchase at the event.

Members of the Council will be available to throughout the event and will be more than happy to provide any information on joining the Institution; the education programme available or assist with any IRO matters that you may be interested in.

The event is open to members and non members.

To book your place please contact Dave Davidson by emailing sw.events@railwayoperators.co.uk
