Transport and Engineering Technology
Group Leader is Peter Houghton
The Group hopes to cover all aspects of Transport and Engineering, allowing members to indulge their interests whether it be Railways, Boats, Aircraft, Canals, Trams or any other type of engineering.
During the winter months, we invite speakers on interesting subjects. When the weather is kinder, we hold more outside activities including visits. Visits are usually by members' own transport.
There may be charges for some events.
In addition to the events shown below, we are hoping to visit the British Motor Museum in April. More details will be given when the date is fixed.
