    Looking to the past, thinking of the future.Heritage & High Speed Rail research (Gareth Dennis, Permanent Rail Engineering)

    N.B. Change of paper & speaker!

    Gareth is a senior permanent way design engineer, a lecturer in track systems at the National College for High Speed Rail, a contributing writer for RAIL magazine and other publications as well as the York Section Secretary for the Permanent Way Institution. On top of all this, he also pursues a variety of railway research projects and will present a talk in two (very different) parts covering contrasting elements of this work. The first part will be a discussion of his research into the limits for rail wear on heritage railways, looking not just at the science but also the behavioural aspects of heritage railway infrastructure management. The second part will be a brief look at more recent research into the development of improved rail connectivity across the UK. Inevitably something for everyone!
