17th June 2021 Adrian White " Next Train Gone." - Adrian's Presentation of Next Train Gone is a collection of digital railway related images he has captured over the last dozen years featuring Steam, Diesel and Electric, both Preserved and on the National Networks. The images feature railways both home and abroad and try to place the locomotive/train in it's environment, doing the job they were designed for, the movement of people and goods. They are taken throughout the year, both day and night and in all conditions. As Adrian's good friend Mr. Gifford always reminds him, " there is no such thing as bad weather, just weather!" How true! .

15th July 2021 David Pearce " Tebay on Ebay." - Tebay on Ebay is a digital dip into David's growing collection of negatives and slides acquired from various sources over a number of years. This personal show shares his affinity with railway scenes that resonate, both with an interest in photography, as well as nostalgia for scenes that were once so familiar. Most are pictures he would like to have made himself but there are many that it would never have occurred to him to compose. Some are from before his time, but most are from those impressionable years of his youth over fifty years ago when the traditional railway was rapidly disappearing. Lots of locations may be familiar but the variety of images depict the railway in varying settings and moods. The show is a personal tribute to photographers, both known and unknown, wittingly or unwittingly imaginative enough to see their subject in a wider context. It is shared as fitting recognition of their efforts in recording what has now come to be regarded as an integral part of social history.
