London’s Lost Pneumatic Railways Talk – LURS 9 August 2016


Long Branch Mike will be presenting at the London Underground Railway Society (LURS) on Tuesday 9 August, 2016, at the Society’s monthly meeting, on the development and evolution of the Pneumatic Despatch Railway, the world’s second oldest underground, as well as on other pneumatic railways of the era that were started and proposed.


The talk is based on the LR article which covered the topic, as well as its prequel article on Lapsed historian, but with additional information on other pneumatic railway schemes.

The talk will be illustrated by a visual presentation and will be followed by a question and answer session.
