Transport

Interested in learning about the impact, history and technology of transport, in all its forms? If so, this group is for you! We provide the opportunity for you to learn how transport by road, rail, water and air have evolved and how it has shaped our lives in so many ways.

In normal times, the Transport Group met 2.30-4.00pm on the 3rd Monday of the month, at Ely Bowls Club, Nutholt Lane, Ely CB7 4PL. During the Covid-19 lockdown, we are keeping in touch through Transport News edited by Mike Dyson. This is emailed to members, but copies are posted on this page. Also, from 21 September, members are having monthly meetings using Zoom

There are also a number of small sub-groups that work informally, to share in the study of specific topics and/or the organisation of trips.
Model Engineering
Rail Roving
Vehicle Technology
Wartime Airfields

The group is coordinated by Peter Lee (tel 649417) and Carol Trigg, supported by a team, who are; Rob Barter (treasurer), Mike Dyson (newsletter editor), Jane Wicks, Chris Holley (programme archive) and Colin George.

Interested? Please send a message through the contact button on this page. We would be delighted to hear from you!
