From Mike Sleigh, Engineering the London Underground.
From Tony Alderman, The wild abandoned railway in the centre of Paris.
From George Clark, How to make a steam locomotive, Princess Royal Class 6207 under construction.
From Kim Jackman, a fascinating account of film taken by an american pilot based in England during WWII, Spitfire 944.
Nick Ruddick, our member who lives in California, sent me the sad news that his club, the North County Model Railroad Society, are having to vacate their rented premises.
