The annual P S O V show is always popular. Karl Jauncey and Dave Richards will present a DVD review of mainline steam action in 2012. Karl and Dave travel the length and breadth of the country to find steam hard at work on the national network. A wide selection of their DVDs will be available to purchase at bargain prices. This presentation is in conjunction with The Little Midland Society.
John joins us to present a selection of material from the extensive Morten family collection built up over many years. The late Ernest Raymond Morten is renowned for his photography countrywide, but particularly in the Peak District, and it is often said that his pictures have the ‘wow’ factor. The collection includes images pre dating Nationalisation.
Scotland is not often represented in shows at Barrow Hill. Keith’s presentation starts at Carlisle and stretches not only over to the west coast but as far north as Mallaig. There is plenty of variety with both freight and passenger workings included, with the majority of scenes being from the eighties and nineties.

Colin, a long term railway professional, and co-author of the book ‘An Illustrated History of Eastleigh Locomotive Works’, will cover the full one hundred years history of Eastleigh Locomotive Works, in Hampshire, including his own experiences there in the fifties and sixties. He brings the story up to date with the closure of the works in 2006, and its resurgence in a new guise since that time.
Colin, and wife Mary, are active supporters of the ‘Railway Children’ charity and in addition to the main programme of the evening will briefly touch on the charity and the work it does.

An extra meeting in memory of Trevor, who died suddenly on 26th October 2011. A look at some of his extensive collection of steam and diesel slides, including some local scenes. Proceeds from the evening towards the continued preservation of D213 Andania, which Trevor owned.
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.
