Photography has many different elements, interpretations and effects. Tonight Geoff demonstrates that there is more to railway photography than the traditional front three quarter view and uses different lighting situations to create a different, and often dramatic, picture.
Our annual festive get together. Details and prices to be
We start the 2014 programme with a two part show. Part 1 will be a selection of pictures from the camera of the late Ken Boulter, a Sheffield optician and prolific photographer of the railway scene around Sheffield, and further afield, in the steam era consisting of black and white shots taken from the late thirties to late fifties. Part 2 will be a look at the train arrangements for the visit of Queen Victoria to Sheffield in 1897.
A selection of photographs from the Moseley Collection of the Sutton Coldfield Railway Society, the images having been painstakingly restored from prints.
We are pleased to welcome Karl Jauncey and Dave Richards back to the Roundhouse for their annual DVD presentation. As always this will be a top quality production of steam hard at work on the national network throughout the country during 2013.
A look at the history of this well known company, with a particular emphasis on Derbyshire.
Following Keith’s excellent presentation in 2013 he makes a welcome return with another Scottish selection, this time concentrating on the eastern side of the country, predominantly diesels in the late eighties and early nineties, covering the Far North line, the Highlands, Aberdeen and Edinburgh areas.
A two part show depicting preserved British steam, both on the main line and at heritage railways, in many parts of the country. Part 1 will include scenes from the eighties and early nineties, whilst part 2 will show the run up to the digital era with scenes from around 2005 to 2010/11.
Peter Fox passed away on 8th February, 2011. He is probably best known in enthusiast circles for the creation of Platform 5 Publications, along with Neil Webster, initially producing the Motive Power Pocket Book. On similar lines to the Ian Allan publications, this provided a whole host of new and up-to-date information. Such was the success that other Pocket Books followed and are still published today. In his memory Grand Central HST Power Car 43484 was named Peter Fox 1942-2011 Platform 5, at Sheffield Midland’s platform 5 on 15th May, 2011. Tonight’s show is presented in Peter’s memory and includes images from his early photographic years, the early sixties and seventies.
The show consists largely of railway photographs taken in every year since 1947, the year Colin first started railway photography. There is a huge range of railway content, all types of trains in all sorts of places in the UK and other countries. As for the bizarre title, you will have to wait and see!
We are pleased to welcome back Graham Briggs and the team to present another DVD show of preserved steam at work throughout Britain, both on the national network and at many of the country’s heritage lines.
Les will again present another wide ranging selection from his renowned collection of photographs covering all modes of traction at home and abroad.
A look at each of the 100 class 60 locomotives built, along with each of their same numbered steam counterparts.
Wait and see!
