NAG Meeting 20th June 2019

Postby RobM » Mon Jun 24, 2019 7:16 am

9 members attended this meeting.
We watched 2 films.
The first was steam on the Eastern Region.
Filmed in late 50s and early 60s,we saw Kings Cross and East Coast main Line to
Peterborough and Doncaster. A1, A2, A3, A4, B1 and V2 classes were shown in colour and
black & white.
Some of the line was being electrified and we winced as trains passed extremely close to
men on ladders – no orange vests or health and safety was evident!
London Eastern suburban services with L1 and N7 locos were shown along with the LTS line
with ex LMS tanks.
Some diversions were taken from the main line to Lincolnshire, Grimsby and Immingham
and the last days of service at Stainmore and Bishop Auckland with K1.
The second film set in the same period covered the North West and West Midlands with
Coronation Pacifics, Royal Scots and Jubilees, alond with LMS 2-6-4 tanks in abundance.
Plenty of shots at Scout Green.
Then we went to the Southern Region with pacifics and moguls, with (fs and Q1s. Ending on
the Isle of Wight with 02s.
Doncaster was then visited with pacifics and freight at Langwith – 04s and the occasional 9F
or austerities. In Scotland pre-grouping locos from the North British and Caledonian,
following restoration were shown on a rail tour. J27s, Q6s and K1s were shown in the North
Thank you to Tony for being our projectionist.
Next week 27th June is a whole day meeting.
