Welcome to the South East Railway Division
Welcome to a new season of events!
Welcome to the 2012/13 programme which, as ever, strives to provide a wide variety of events and themes.
We will again hold our talks in London Underground’s headquarters at 55 Broadway, as this has proved very popular. But on occasion we are making use of alternative venues, so please do check the venue details before you set out!
We ask that you arrive after 17:30 for some light refreshments in advance of the start of the talk.
Talks will include an examination of the ways railways troubleshoot problem assets, how lessons from accidents are translated into actions, an update on the major developments resulting from Thameslink and the Deep Tube project, and modifying existing train fleets to meet the tough demands of the future.
There will be an evening of talks by the Young Members, a look at the changes the Metropolitan Line has seen as we reach its 150 year birthday, and a visit to the new Emirates Air Line cable car in East London.
I, and indeed the whole committee, hope this will provide something of interest for everyone.
Chairman, South East Centre
