MEMORABILIA of former railway lines in Herts is being sought for an autumn exhibition in St Albans.

The Museum of St Albans is putting on the exhibition to commemorate and celebrate old lines in the county and is appealing to residents to share their memories and old photographs of the tracks.

The Lost Rails exhibition will focus particularly on six branch lines - the Ayot Greenway, Alban Way, Nickey Line, Ebury Way, Cole Green Way and Buntingford Line. Some of the "Lost Rails" are now being used for cycleways, footpaths and bridleways.

The museum wants to hear from anyone with memories of the former railway lines dating back to when they were still in operation or relating to their current use.

It is particularly interested in talking to people who worked on the lines, used them to travel to work, lived alongside them or who can recall any interesting incidents that occurred on them.

Anyone who can provide photographs or other objects associated with the lines is also asked to make contact with Rosalyn Goulding on 01727 819581, by emailing ros.goulding@stalbans.gov.uk or The Museum of St Albans, 9a Hatfield Road, St Albans, AL1 3RR.
