Branch Meetings

Railfuture Yorkshire and North West joint branch meeting Saturday 25th November 2023 at 14.30
Professor Paul Salveson of Rail Reform Group
Cornerstone Room, in Square Chapel Arts Centre, Halifax HX1 1QG (right outside the iconic Piece Hall – 5 minutes’ walk from Halifax station)

Sometimes billed as the inventor of community rail, Paul Salveson will need little introduction for many Yorkshire and North West Railfuture members. We have given him a wide remit and topics covered may depend partly on what’s in the news.

Whatever Paul’s subject, this will be a thought-provoking afternoon! Centrepiece of the meeting is expected to be a workshop session. We hope this will allow – even encourage! – everyone who wants to contribute to do so. Yorkshire Branch looks forward to welcoming Railfuture friends from the North West branch.

The meeting will finish no later than 5.30 pm. Please be there, enjoy your day in Halifax, and support our two branches.

We look forward to seeing you!
