About this event

The event will consist of four or five short talks, each providing an overview of an aspect of the subject, followed by questions and comments from the audience to a panel made up of the speakers.  

While termed a Great Debate the format is really a briefing on the way in which the railways are changing over the next 10 to 20 years, with the opportunity for the audience to ask questions and to express their own views.

A poster for the event is now available to download.
