Susie Holden replied to Alex King's forum post Community Rail Week at Ally Pally station.
"It was a really good event and great that the visitors stayed long enough to really talk to people. The music in the station foyer was a massive hightlight - huge thanks to wonderful neighbours from Crescent Road and Bidwell Gardens."

They were celebrating 75 years since it was built by Colin Chapman in one of these same garages, owned by his girlfriend's parents. Their son and daughter are pictured, about to set off on a repeat of its…

The question remains relevant.

The acts used projections, music and words in various combinations which are not easy to…
