February 26th 2021 ( this will be an on-line presentation via Zoom** )
Stephen Bigley presents “Railways of Scotland 2013-2018 ”
Hills valleys and rivers make for impressive railway infrastructure – from the mighty Forth and Tay Bridges to disused viaducts in spectacular settings. The passenger trains are now nearly all multiple units – apart from overnight sleepers hauled by renovated class 73 electro diesels – and pockets of semaphore signalling are reminders of an earlier age.
Glasgow and Edinburgh have large and impressive city centre stations but suburban Glasgow in particular still has some small and attractive stations. A few quirky features – like a bridge under a bridge. Geographically the spread will be from Dundee – Perth – Glasgow south to the Borders
** Members will be asked to indicate their intentions, and will be circulated with Zoom invitations a week in advance. Non-members please contact us to request an invitation.
Club outings in June and August - some idea of likely numbers needed very soon - come prepared!
