Join Vicki Pipe and Geoff Marshall from All the Stations (YouTube vloggers and survivors of a crowd-funded trip to visit all the stations in the UK) for this talk on their first publication of: The Railway Adventures: Places, Trains, People and Stations.

The railways are one of our finest engineering legacies - a web of routes connecting people to each other and to a vast network of world-class attractions. Share Vicki and Geoff’s enjoyment in the landscape of Great Britain, as they travel on lesser known routes, disembark at unfamiliar stations, explore new places and get to know the communities who keep small stations and remote lines alive.

The Railway Adventures: Places, Trains, People and Stations, is released on the 16 October by September Publishing.

Ticket holders will be able to purchase a copy of The Railway Adventures, and Vicki and Geoff will be signing copies at the event.

Join us for a special evening at London Transport Museum, where we will be joined by author and historian and Emmanuelle Dirix as she interprets our exhibition Poster Girls through the particular lens of fashion and textiles. Discover the golden age of women’s poster design in the interwar period, the historical and social changes that made this possible and how these changes influenced the designs themselves.
