Stephen Gay
“Railways in the Cornish Landscape”

March 9th 2016

The Old Church Rooms, Park Road,
Radyr, Cardiff, CF15 8DF

Stephen will give his own Yorkshire take on this subject with his own illustrations, anecdotes and (probably) poems; not to be missed.

“Last night I dreamt I went to Manderley again …”
That classic opening line from REBECCA the romantic suspense novel by Daphne DuMaurier

“Last night I dreamt I went on the sleeping car train to Penzance again…”.
The opening line from RAILWAYS IN A CORNISH LANDSCAPE a slide show by Stephen Gay .

Join Stephen and his faithful German Shepherd dog WRAWBY on their journeys and adventures exploring the railways of Cornwall.
Using recently taken slides, this presentation will also include historical information, a few poetry readings and many laughs along the way!
WRAWBY will not be present at the show , but will appear on a few pictures.

This show will include the Calstock / Gunnislake , Looe , Fowey and Newquay branch, not forgetting the main line to Truro, where this show will finish.

Noel Thompson – “An SLS/Alan Jarvis Evening of Photographs”

No introduction necessary for Noel, he was our branch secretary for many years, tonight he has been given access to the evocative photographs of the late Alan Jarvis.

“AN SLS/ALAN JARVIS EVENING OF PHOTOGRAPHS
In the words of the Hennessey’s song title, Alan was Cardiff born and Cardiff bred and lived for most of his life in the Victoria Park area of the city. He was a prolific and distinguished photographer and following his death in 2014 his collection was given to the Stephenson Locomotive Society. We are able to enjoy tonight’s selection of photographs from Alan’s collection thanks to the agreement of the SLS.
Alan’s ashes were scattered near the railway at St Fagans, a favourite location of his, and our journey begins and ends there. The majority of tonight’s photographs were taken in South Wales, but we will also travel to North and West Wales as well as a number of locations over the border. The photographs in the first half are almost all taken in the 1950s and are in black and white which gives us the opportunity to see a number of pre-grouping locomotive classes at work. The second half will feature colour photographs from the 1960s. Some of the photographs are familiar to the presenter from Alan’s published work, most are not.
Not all the pictures are of trains. Railway infrastructure and trams and trolleybuses will also be seen. I am confident that everyone will enjoy the evening as much as I have had in choosing what to include.”
