A Railway Quiz

On 9 May we welcomed branch member Glen Richards to present his Railway Quiz. This was a series of ninety six questions in eight categories based on his nationwide travels mainly in the seventies and eighties recorded on colour slides.

The subjects were Closures,Locations,Locomotives,Network,Multiplenits,Freight,Services and Miscellany. Although audience attendance was somewhat disappointing those present entered in to the spirit of the evening and some questions including some local scenes were somewhat difficult even for the more knowledgeable amongst us. The slides also showed how the national and local rail network has changed over the last thirty or so years with many locations shown no longer served by rail

However the quiz was finally won by long standing branch member Graham Hardinge by a margin of over fifteen points. We would like to thank Glen for all the hard work in setting up the evening for us.
