Trackside Talks

In conjunction with the Bahamas Locomotive Society we are delighted to announce a series of short talks by prominent members of the KWVR & BLS. These talks, that will cover railway matters both locally and nationally, will take place in the Learning Coach at Ingrow West station.

Most talks take place during the day, are FREE to anyone who wishes to attend and there is no need to book in advance. However it would be very helpful to us if you could register your interest to attend by calling 07825 632 123 or emailing
