LECTURES and TALKS2021 Programme

'Our aim is to promote an interest in contemporary, historic and heritage public transport, encompassing buses, coaches, railway traffic and other vehicles. We meet regularly in the Edinburgh area to discuss our interests in an informal friendly situation, in the form of indoor meetings in the Autumn and Winter seasons, and outdoor events in the Spring and Summer months. Our Winter meetings, from September to April (except January), consist of slide shows, talks and presentations by invited industry managers, knowledgable historians, and our own enthusiastic members. Summer meetings, from May to August when there are more daylight hours, are normally bus trips to various locations on interesting vintage, heritage or modern buses hired for the occasion.'

We encourage work that is inventive and exploratory, and especially work that forges links between the humanities and the interpretive or historical social sciences, and between the humanities in this broad sense and the medical, natural and technological sciences.'
