Ely & District

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.

The Transport Group now meets 2.30-4.00pm on the 3rd Wednesday of the month, at the Ely Methodist Church, 13-15 Chapel St, Ely. There is a free car park (maximum 2 hours) in St Marys Street (postcode CB7 4ES), from which there is access to the church, unlocked during meetings. See Dates for your Diary below for details of the meetings and other activities.

During the 2020-21 COVID restrictions, we published 64 issues of Transport News edited by Mike Dyson, available through the link 'Access Transport News Issues' on this page. Over 350 articles and other items were contributed by the members, and you can check out the context and subject of these using the indexes, also accessible through links on this page.

There are a number of small sub-groups that work informally, to share in the study of specific topics and/or the organisation of trips.
Lost Railways of East Anglia
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, Colin George and Peter Nancollis, and Chris Holley (programme archive).
