Drawing on records from an extensive variety of sources and using practical case studies, historians, National Railway Museum staff and experienced genealogists will reveal some little-known facets of the wider railway community.
Places are limited and are available on a first come, first served basis so book early to guarantee your place. Price: £35 (£30 to Friends of the NRM, not available online, please phone 01904 621261) – includes lunch and refreshments.
