CAN YOU HELP?
A project seeking to uncover the history of a railway in north-west England is searching for volunteers.
Signal Film and Media, based in Barrow-in- Furness, is hoping to tell the story of Furness Railway between 1846 and 1970. Having received a grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund, the organisation plans to uncover the role that the network played in the town’s industrial past and find out how it is remembered today.
Running until April 2016, volunteers will be able to undertake archival research and share their own memories of using the train, whether for work or leisure. The group is also looking for anyone that might have any relevant photographs or memorabilia.
If you have a story to tell or would like to volunteer, contact rachel@ signalfilmandmedia.co.uk or phone 01229 8388592.
Do you have any stories about travelling on the Furness Railway?
