A trip back in the time machine to Les’s student days in around Southampton we saw 30862 ‘Lord Collingwood’ leaving the docks.

Back to the edge of the Peak District saw us at Gowhole in snowy February 1968 with three locos on view – two 8Fs and a Black 5.

Paul amused us with lots of light-hearted quips and kept the audience on its toes by getting us to guess the year of some of the photographs.

Moving on to infrastructure, the subject matter proved to be an array of signals as they used to be at Blackpool and at St. A quick slip back in time took us to a location near Retford to view 60111 ‘Enterprise’.

After a view of Tinsley depot in 1965, Les stated that hardly anything railway-related now survives in this area.

196 ‘Clan Mackenzie’ was handling a goods train whilst in 1963 Burton Jubilee 45557 ‘New Brunswick’ was fairly clean and handling the 08.05 Birmingham service.

Another freight service had the rare combination of 70041 ‘Sir John Moore’ and D5707 with the Co-Bo leading!

Moving further back in time to 1957, Les’s personal motive power was a motorbike and on this trip he captured Clan 72007 ‘Clan Mackintosh’ and a very dirty 9F. Thus we viewed a Q6 in the wilderness near to Consett in 1964 followed by a view of Cockshute shed in Stoke. A night shot taken on 29th December 1967 on the last evening at Tebay shed was followed, touchingly, by a sunset photograph. As ever, it was a wonderful evening of quality photography.

Les’s verdict was that it was in the best “camel s- - - & sand livery.” A visit to Bradford Forster Square with his wife Carol led to him musing on how take an interesting photograph. ” A standard class 75 seen in 1968 was framed by the doors of Skipton shed – by then the shed had closed and the tracks to it had been removed. October - Paul Chancellor, "A fifth Colour-Railway journey" Once again it was a great pleasure to welcome Paul Chancellor from Colour-Rail for his annual visit.

On this theme we were urged to take photographs of today’s railways because what we take for granted today will soon be history. First he gave us a quick resume of his company: it has 80,000 images to view and an update takes place on the 15 of every month.

The show was divided into eight pasrts with the first being dedicated to South Wales.

46157 ‘The Royal Artilleryman’ had the locals at Lancaster touching the tender.

Finally two Scots, one being 46160 again were the subject of rapt attention.

The latter shed had a nice line up of 60052, 6019, but a rarer shed was the DMU depot at Leith where, much to the annoyance of the local Transport Policeman, Paul had a permit!
