Thornbury

Railways

The group intends to hold meetings to discuss all modes of transport with probably a greater emphasis on all aspects of Railway operation - historical, engineering, rolling stock, stations etc and of course, modernisation to the present day operations.

Talks on other forms of Transport, include aviation and canals, will be scheduled when suitable speakers become available.

Meetings are held on the fourth Friday of each month at the Alveston Methodist Church (using either the Church or the Church Hall) starting at 19.30h.

For further information contact George Hargreaves, the Group Leader, by email to Railways.
