The session will feature the famous “New River steam train” which runs in West Virginia for 2 weekends in November to view the famous colours of “the Fall”.
This is the final Rail presentation by Bill, who was a former Benalla Stationmaster and life- long rail enthusiast! Bill made 5 trips to the USA between 1960-1999 and has great knowledge of USA trains. At the end of his presentation Bill will show a DVD given to him by Wendy Sturgess on her return from a rail-touring holiday in the USA. There is spectacular coverage of the “Cardinal” train on its run between Chicago &Washington, traversing the route of the New River Gorge which is shown after a heavy snowfall. Clips of high speed steam tours on this route in the fall are included.
Bill would be delighted to see ex members of his classes and newcomers. Phone Bill (5762 5883), or join him on the day.
