Date: 11 March 2022
Time: 7:30 pm
Location: Galmpton Village Institute
Entrance Fee: £2

Our Annual General Meeting will be followed by an illustrated talk by our very own committee member Dennis Sheen.

The story provides a brief outline of the gradual development of the early English railway system.

From Newcomen to efficient steam locomotives; wooden tracks to usable tracks; from public resistance and disbelief to realisation of the benefits of the world’s first commercial railways.
