Britain's railways in the 1960's under Thatcham spotlight

BRITAIN’S railways in the 1960s come into sharp focus at a talk in Thatcham on Monday.

Newbury and District Transport Group will host the presentation by Derek  Spicer from Reading Transport Group.

The talk takes the form of a journey around Southern England and the South Midlands, using photographs of locomotives, trains and stations. 

The photographs were taken by Mr Spicer as a schoolboy, on railtours and trips out, using his parents’ modest cameras.

The evening starts at 7.30pm, at the community space at Kennet School. Free admission and parking. All are welcome.
