Meeting Reports

On 14/6 was the occasion of the 'Members afternoon’. Bob Stonehouse brought along a number of slides featuring Steam Specials he rode on in the 1980's. It was a nostalgic presentation as many of the locomotives are no longer operating on the main line such 46229 ' Duchess of Hamilton' or 4771'Green Arrow'. Also of note was the variety of liveries and the 'run pasts' which were possible then. Chris Appleby's slides recalled his three visits to China around 1990 and the magnificent sight of their steam locomotives hauling heavy freight trains. Chris recalled that the local officials were relatively relaxed and didn't seek to prevent photography.
