Purbeck Railway Circle March Meeting


Our next meeting is on Friday 9th March, when Peter Jordan will deliver a presentation entitled “Indian Narrow Gauge Railways”. Peter (Fuzz) Jordan has been chasing trains round India since his first visit back in 1979.

Given his background with the Ffestiniog Railway, it is not surprising that his first love in India is the Darjeeling Himalayan Railway. However, all the railways in India are of interest and this talk will take us from the last years of steam supremacy, through the diesel era to modern times where India has a very modern inter-city electric network.

Whilst the Hill Railways still have lots of charm, India has a wide variety of interesting trains to ride. Fuzz owns and operates Darjeeling Tours and has an extensive knowledge of Indian Railways.

The Circle meets in Harmans Cross Village Hall, Haycrafts Lane, Harmans Cross at 7.00 for 7.30 pm.

EVERYONE IS WELCOME.
