Roy’s presentation will include art, notices and signs. There is sure to be something of interest for everybody.
Mr Colourail himself joins us to show a selection of images from the Colourail Transport Archive.
Andy continues to present images from the collection of the late Peter Fox. We move from the nineties into the 21st century which sees the end of British Rail and into the privatisation era. Privatisation began in 1994 with the passing of the track and infrastructure to Railtrack and was completed by 1997. We see the end of the Inter City Sector and the BR image giving way to the new operators and liveries.
Following Mike’s excellent presentation in 2015, which was billed as London to Scotland, there was so much material that only York was reached before boiler pressure was under the red line! Now with a full head of steam and the safety valves about to lift we are ready for the right away. Mainly BR steam but some diesel and electric traction too. How far north will we get? Come along and find out.
Graham Briggs and the team make a return to Barrow Hill to present another DVD show of preserved steam at work throughout Britain. A two part show with one part dedicated to steam on the main line, the other dedicated to steam on a wide selection of the country’s heritage railways.
The story in pictures of the project to save Britain’s last operational roundhouse.
Wide ranging UK scenes from the mid-sixties to the present day along with a selection of foreign content too.
Once again a big thank you to Paul Beardsley for lining up yet another entertaining and educational series of presentations for us to enjoy – thank you Paul!
