This working paper is the text of a speech given by Professor Colin Divall of the Institute of Railways Studies at York University about some of the ways in which the public learns about the histories of transport and travel, in particular displays and exhibitions; and heritage transport attractions such as steam train, vintage bus and tram operators. He argues that these attractions could do more to engage their visitors' attention and open up opportunities for informal learning about the history of transport and travel.
