The Trust has a growing range of railway related projected digital slide shows that are available for presentation to interested groups. These are of varying lengths and can be made available during the day or in the evening. We are happy to show these at any venue within the UK but we are Gloucestershire based and travel costs obviously increase the further we travel.
A flat rate charge of £15 is made for showing any of these, along with an additional variable contribution to the travelling costs to be agreed at the time of booking. These charges are purely designed to cover costs, capital replacement of the digital projector and petrol for the presenter.
Details of each of the presentations available can be obtained by clicking on the links in the list at the bottom of the page. If you wish to make a booking for one of these, please refer to the Contacts page of this site for details.
