18:00 Category: LSS - Public event (not at Secular Hall)[18:30] LSS: Bruce Wakley – the Campaign to Reopen the Ivanhoe Line
Bruce Wakley CRIL – the Campaign to Reopen the Ivanhoe Line Bruce will talk about reopening the freight only Leicester-Burton line to passengers after it was closed to passengers in the Beeching cuts of 1964. There have been several attempts at getting this line reopened over the years.  CRIL was created around Christmas 2018 and was one of the ten “winners” in the first tranche of the Restore Your Railway initiative, launched earlier this year.  This talk will cover the line and progress to date. CRIL is a non-political voluntary organisation where Bruce is the research lead and project manager, working with the DfT, rail franchise holders, Network Rail and Derby University to progress the line’s reopening. You are welcome to participate for free, but will need the joining information in our weekly email.
