David Brace is a member of Railway Rambler, Railfuture and Basingstoke & District Railway Society and has a passion for railways both at home and abroad. Join David for an insight into the history of one of the country’s first intercity railways to be built in the south, as he chronicles progress between 1833 to 1854. During this time, the Portsmouth to Eastleigh line was opened, Andover and Salisbury lines were completed and Brunel’s broad-gauge branch was built to a separate but adjoining station in Basingstoke. With the southern railway landscape changing apace, David will give a non-stop journey through some of the 19th and 20th century railways built in the south east – without any delays!
