Industrial Heritage Group
Leader Mike Stow 01530 469152
The Industrial Heritage Group is for members who have an interest in our industrial heritage of trains, cars, planes, bikes, early manufacturing etc. to visit museums, railways, factories and other places related to our industrial past. We occasionally take a quite broad view of what constitutes "Industrial Heritage" if it is of interest to us!

18th October. Great Central RailwayTwelve of us gathered at Quorn for an outing to the Great Central Railway on Wednesday 18th October. This was a week earlier than our normal group outing, but the railway only operates mid-week during half-term at this time of year. We were able to admire some components for a new steam locomotive being constructed, although it does not yet look much like a complete one - other work is being undertaken elsewhere. Also in the yard was a visiting locomotive which was about to be taken to another railway. Two low-loaders were parked ready and, by lunchtime, it was loaded and on its way.
