    Permanent Rail Engineering - Looking to the Past, Thinking of the Future; Heritage & High Speed Rail Research (Gareth Dennis)

    Gareth is a permanent way design engineer at Arcadis, as well as the York Section Secretary for the Permanent Way Institution. On top of his day job, he is also pursuing a variety of railway research projects and will present a talk in two (very different) parts covering two 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 apects of heritage railway management. The second part will be a brief look at more recent research into the the development of improved rail connectivity across the North of England, including both high speed and urban rail networks. Inevitably, something for everyone.
