Ken Livermore " London Steam in the 50's and 60's "

At the time period covered by Ken's Presentation, there were a dozen termini and some eighteen operational locomotive depots, the London area was a paradise for railway enthusiasts in the 1950's and early 1960's. Ancient and modern steam locomotives could be found mixing their duties with the newly introduced "Pilot Scheme" diesels. Each of the "Big Four" railway companies were well represented with many of their most impressive steam locomotives still kept in spotless condition for the most important duties. At the other end of the scale, humble shunters went about their business in vast goods yards and sidings. Ken's presentation sets out to capture the glamour and grime of everyday railway operation in the Capital before much of it was swept away by modernisation.

It is planned that this will be a Hybrid Meeting, with an actual meeting taking place at the Bourne End Comunity Centre, and also a Zoom Presentation.
