Hybrid Lecture, One Birdcage Walk and Online
Free and open to all
Andrew Cooper is not an engineer but has spent a career working with, and indeed managing, engineers of many disciplines in pursuit of a railway upon which passengers will be delighted to travel. He notes that the Sir Seymour Biscoe Tritton Lecture allows the sharing of thoughts ‘upon any subject connected with locomotive engineering’. He therefore intends to use considerable license in sharing his experiences of the many issues faced when trying to meet the needs of the traveler, all arising from the desire to propel trains safely, efficiently, speedily, and smoothly over the permanent way.
