Commenting on the launch of the new line, Transport Secretary Chris Grayling said:

“This is the first new rail link between a major British city and the capital in 100 years and also a shining example of partnership working between the private and public sector.   From today travellers to and from London Marylebone and Oxford will get increased choice, more trains and faster journey times.  The link is also an important part of the new East West line to be built between Oxford and Cambridge and will bring growth and prosperity to this corner of Britain.”

But what were the problems to get it opened? and how were they solved? Steve Baker, Strategic Development Engineer, Chiltern Railways explains the problems, solutions and successes of this new railway line.

Tea, coffee and sandwiches are available from 17.00 and the presentation starts at 17.30. After the lecture we invite you to join us for a drink and further discussions at ‘The Glue Pot’, 5 Emlyn Square, Swindon SN1 5BP. This is a traditional pub in Brunel’s Swindon Village, close to Western House and the station
