Unless otherwise noted, all meetings are held in Huddersfield Town Hall (generally in the Old Court Room, but please check with Reception on arrival) commencing at 19.30.

September 4th. Steve Batty

A welcome return this evening for Steve Batty. Steve has entertained us in the past, with a variety of presentations and at the annual dinner. Always finding somewhere east of the A1, he does like to be out there for plenty of steam.

September 18th. The audience selects - Gavin Morrison

After a huge effort by Gavin on scanning and filing his slides, he can give shows where the audience selects from any number of folders on the memory stick. Should be a fascinating evening!

October 2nd. Rails to the Arctic - Phil Lockwood & Enid Vincent

Phil and Enid have travelled extensively with their cameras over the years and have covered the Scandinavian railways very well.

October 16th. Travelling The Rhaetian Railway - Robert Clarke

This is an extensive Metre Gauge system in Switzerland, so no shortage of trains and scenery.

October 30th. Steve Chapman - Coal and Other Power Station Traffic

This looks a totally different show from one of our own members.

November 13th. Annual Dinner

Information to follow.

November 27th. Julian Halstead - Ireland

A welcome return to Julian. His previous show on the West Highland sleeper was fascinating, and I’m sure Ireland will be.

December 4th. Chairman’s Evening.

Our Chairman, Robert Clarke, will provide the entertainment with members providing the nibbles. NOTE THE DATE PLEASE! THERE IS NO SUITABLE VENUE FOR THE USUAL DATE WITH A FORTNIGHT INTERVAL.
