Welcome to the South Western Railway Division Centre

In this, my first year as Chairman of the South-Western Centre, I have pleasure in welcoming you to our programme of events for 2018-19. I hope that you will find this of interest.  All of our events are free and are open to engineers of all disciplines, and indeed to non-engineers. Everyone with an interest in our topics are welcome, please do spread the word amongst your friends and associates. This is especially important this year because the implementation of General Data Protection Regulations is causing a hiatus with reminder Emails, but we are still working towards a sensible interpretation of these regulations. 

With regard to this years events we are continuing our successful engagement with universities with a careers event and presentation, open to all, at the Universities of Bath and Portsmouth. There is also the popular Christmas family evening in December followed by a hot buffet, and I would particularly recommend the March Future of Rail presentation competition as a thoroughly interesting and enjoyable evening hearing about the work being done by a number of young developing engineers in our region.

Our AGM will be held on 8th April 2019.  If you have any suggestions for future lectures, technical visits or other matters, or would like to be considered for a position on the Committee, we would be very pleased to hear from you.

The summer social planned for 2019 will be a different format this time, we hope that you will be interested in a day out on the Gloucester and Warwickshire Steam Railway. 

Please note that an earlier version of the programme, which was previously available here, contained a typographical error (wrong date). For a correct printed copy of the 2018/19 programme please press here.
