Basingstoke and District Railway Society – May 2024

Basingstoke & District Railway Society

Upcoming Talks

The recent past and more nostalgia at our meetings this month!
We start on Wednesday 8th May with Gosling Galavants Again in ’23 when member Paul Gosling will illustrate his railway-related travels during 2023. Paul always has a wide variety of places and subjects to talk about, so where did he get to and what did he see last year? Come along and find out.

The Ramblings of a Railwayman will entertain us on Wednesday 22nd May when Geoff Burch returns to tell us more of his life on the railways. Geoff began his career as a cleaner at Guildford loco, experienced many different types of engine and was one of the crew on the last steam locomotives to leave Guildford, so he has plenty of stories to tell.

Our meetings are at 7.45pm at The Wote Street Club in New Road in Basingstoke town centre, RG21 7NG, which has a licenced bar and usually conclude by 10.00pm. Do join us for these meeting, either by becoming a Society member or as a visitor (at a cost of just £5). Membership details are on our website at or call the Secretary on 07837 320790.
