Railway Interest Group
Co-ordinator: Robert Watson
Phone: 01565 633147
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?
