Operating and Conserving Historic Industrial & Transport Collections

Wednesday 21st November 2018

Association of British Transport Museums & London Museum of Water & Steam

Following on from two successful and sold out seminars launching ABTEM's 'Guidelines for the Care of Larger & Working Historic Objects’ this event provides an opportunity to hear more about the new document and hear case studies illustrating the issues faced by those conserving and operating and industrial transport collections.

Speakers include Paul & Joyce Jefford, case study contributors to the Guidelines, Christopher Binks from the National Railway Museum and Efstathios Tsolis who as part of the International Railway Heritage Consultancy helped compile the new document.

The event is hosted by the London Museum of Water and Steam and so there will also be case studies from John Porter (LMWS) and Peter Turvey (Kennet & Avon Canal Trust) highlighting the issues most relevant to those operating stationary steam engines as well as the chance to look around the Museum and speak to the volunteer team there.

The meeting will also include the ABTEM Annual General Meeting.
