Event description
An illustrated talk taking you through the railways which defined and suffered the Crystal Palace.

About this Event

This talk will explore both the evolution of the physical railway connections to the Low-Level and High-Level stations and also a range of literal connections including Paxton’s early doodle of the Crystal Palace, whilst at a railway board meeting, the transportation of the iron work to London by railway, the pneumatic railway built in the grounds and Siemen’s demonstration of a prototype electric train on the Crystal Palace terrace.

This talk should provide insight into diverse aspects of the Crystal Palace story for those interested in local history rather than serious railway enthusiasts.
