The group has now been formed. We propose to cover all aspects of railways from model railways to full size.

Our inaugural meeting is a visit to the ”Making Tracks” Railway Exhibition at Chester Cathedral. The exhibition includes a large model railway layout based on the “West Coast Main Line” built by Pete Waterman the well-known Song Writer, Record Producer and Railway enthusiast.

Following this, we will meet to discuss topics for future meetings which could include:

  • Watching the classic 1936 GPO film “Night Mail” and the 1986 50th anniversary film made by the BBC.
  • Train trips in Europe we have done – or would like to do before it is too late!!
  • My favourite UK loco class – steam and later.
  • Discussing our model railways and things we would like to have.
  • Antique model trains – Anyone still got their childhood model trains?

If you wish to join the group, please contact Robert Watson at  info@knutsfordu3a.co.uk
