20 June 2019 Dr Les Nixon "50 years of Railway Photography Part 2 "
Les's presentation is one that covers over 55 years of railway photography from late 50s to date but not a great a deal of the Noughties . It covers both main line and some industrial systems and visits briefly many countries from around the world. All with some emphasis on a less traditional approach including general views along with the more usual front of trains on the move.
18 July 2019 Colin Miell "Travels with the LCGB in North Korea in 2014 and 2015 "
In 2014 and 2015 The Locomotive Club of Great Britain, in association with Juche Travel, ran two very successful tours to the DPRK (North Korea). This is the illustrated story of those tours, featuring an in depth look at the current railway scene, at everyday life within North Korea, and including trams, trolleybuses, and buses - something for everyone. We were afforded an amazing level of co-operation throughout both tours, especially in respect of photography, and you will see images many people thought would not be possible within that so-called 'Hermit' state.
