Colin Boocock   presents       The Japanese way


This digital slide show covered a wide range of railway journeys and tourist visits in Japan. Although this tour was in the very wet summer of 2009, most of what was experienced then is much the same today. Some traditional heritage tourist spots were included together with many modern towns and cities. The show included journeys on ordinary trains and heritage steam trains, and illustrated the surprising variety that exists among the so-called ‘bullet trains’. It also showed how close the tour party got to Mount Fuji without actually seeing it!   In many ways, the Japanese way of doing things is different from those in the UK, but in others very similar.


 As this meeting was held online, members were able to provide their favourite refreshments in the comfort of their own home.

 (** Members were  circulated with Zoom invitations a week in advance. 

        Visitors could contact the Club via this website by 19th May, to arrange payment and collect the Zoom link to join the meeting)

  A club trip is being organised for  September   - details to be circulated - booking fees needed soon.

Reminder - For those of you who are into Railway Modelling - the New Forest Model Railway Society holds its annual exhibition this month in the Brockenhurst Village Hall - promising to be a most prestigious event!
