BUSINESS HISTORIES OF UK TRAMWAYS

Kevin Tennent (York Management School)
‘Management and competitive advantage in the public transport industry: York Corporation tramways, ca 1909-1934’
All welcome. Refreshments served. PLEASE NOTE THE EARLIER STARTING TIME. This is to accommodate the NRM’s earlier closing time in the low season.
The workshop is scheduled to take place in the Edmondson Room, Search Engine at the National Railway Museum. However we are expecting an even larger than usual attendance and might have to move to the Flying Scotsman (formerly Gibb) lecture theatre.
The NRM is about three minutes’ walk from the railway station, using the footbridge. Please use either the City or Car Park entrances and tell the staff at the welcome desk that you are attending the workshop.
Please note that NRM car-parking charges apply. Free disabled parking is available near the public entrances.
This workshop is financed by the National Railway Museum.
