If you have a question about this talk, please contact Sebastian Gibson.

Tim Mulhall, COO of Hornby Hobbies, is joining us to take a look at the development process from initial model selection to launch of your favourite model train. As you can imagine it is far beyond a simple plastic toy from the Far East. This shall prove to be an interesting talk for anyone who is fond or Hornby or interested in design and manufacturing – not only of model railways, but of the challanges facing any company manafacturing in China.

Please consider coming, evening if you are not into model railways, as I promise you it shall be a highly interesting talk!

The presentation and Q&A session provides a perfect chance to talk to Tim about the Hornby , or even specific graduate opportunities. Yes they really are looking for talented graduates to take the brand forward. (You can also ask about his trains! I will!)

Mixed audience, from many different subject areas. All welcomed to come.


About the CURC :

Founded in 1911 from the Cambridge University branch of The Railway Club, Cambridge University Railway Club (CURC) is the second oldest railway enthusiast club in the world! The CURC arranges an event in Cambridge most weeks during Full Term, most often a presentation by an invited speaker, almost always a key professional from the rail industry, on a specific subject. The club is not just train talk, but about how the railway works. We have a celebrated history of CURC alumni who now work in the railway industry, with some at quite senior levels.

Membership for students costs £10 per year or £25 for life membership. We charge £3 at the door for non-members, upon your third entry to a talk (first two talks are free). So come and try us out for free, gain exclusive access to key railway professionals and depots and you might just want to become a member! (We won’t tell anyone you are ;) )

This talk is part of the Cambridge University Railway Club series.
