Welcome to the Railway Division South East Centre

Welcome to the Railway Division South-East Centre 2018/19 Programme

I am pleased to announce that we will be providing a wide range of technical presentations over the course of the year covering many aspects of railway engineering. We are very much looking to the future with hydrogen powered traction, kneeling passenger stock, the new fleet of Tube trains and the development of Old Oak Common. Also representing the best of today, we are looking at enhancing customer experience through collaboration and state-of-the-art on-track construction trains. We have managed to secure a superb array of speakers, all experts in their fields.

The venue is again in London Underground’s iconic centrally located HQ at 55 Broadway, over St. James’s Park Station and just 5 minutes from Victoria.

The committee look forward to seeing you there.

 

Get Involved

We are looking for volunteers to strengthen the Railway Division South East centre committee so we can continue to deliver high quality events.

Volunteering is a great way to influence what we do, further your skills and experience and broaden your network of contacts.
