Future Meetings


“Crossrail and the Elizabeth Line in Historical Context”, presented by Simon Bennett, Formerly Head of Learning Legacy, Crossrail. 

Civil Engineer, Transport Planner and Communications Professional, Simon has spent the last two decades working on the various iterations of this UK plc project.  He explains how Crossrail builds on the legacy of past projects and provides lessons for the future development of the transport network and of London and the South East.


“New Stock for the Isle of Wight”, presented by Daniel Wright. 

When the Isle of Wight’s railway was electrified in 1967 by British Rail Southern Region, they imported ex-London Underground Standard Stock dating from the 1920s to comprise the train fleet.  The Island Line’s Standard Stock, in turn, was replaced in 1989-90 by 1938 Tube Stock, brought in by Network South-East.  Now, nearly 30 years on, it will soon be time for the 1938 Stock’s replacement as well.  Daniel Wright will outline the options available and possible solutions.
