World Railways Photograph Catalogue - Restoration & Archiving Trust

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 variable charge is made for showing any of these 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.

The following digital slide presentations are available - for more detailed information regarding each of these, please click on the relevant link below. These are also available for private viewing as digital downloads at a cost of £5 each to anyone with a broadband connection (files are around 2gb). Simply pay by Paypal using the Donate button on the digital sales page quoting the reference code(s) of the required show.
