Gone Forever – Images of BR Steam in the North of England (1966-1968)

Tue 8th February @ 19:30 - 22:00

Please note: The RCTS Privacy Policy applies to everyone participating in, or registering for, this event.

The talk will cover the Leeds/Bradford area in 1967, up to the end of steam there in early October 1967 and also North-East England where steam lasted until September 1967.  These two areas contained the last working examples of several classes such as Jubilees, LMS 2-6-4Ts, B1s, Q6s, J27s, and WD 2-8-0s. On the other side of the Pennines the talk will feature pictures taken in 1967 and 1968, especially in the Manchester and Carnforth areas, concluding with the last days of steam around Rose Grove and the 15 Guinea Special on 11th August 1968.
