Basingstoke and District Railway Society – July 2022


We will start this month with a short holiday in the sun. On Wednesday 13 July, Mike Swift will present In Search of Big Steam in Spain, 1963 – the steam scene in Spain in 1963, with some shots from later years.

Then, on Wednesday 27 July, we will come bang up-to-date with London’s recently opened new underground railway with Richard Storer, Crossrail Community Relations Manager, who will present Delivering the Elizabeth Line. Richard will describe the construction of this expensive new railway, the problems encountered and future plans.

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.  We welcome new members to the Society and are always pleased to see non-members at our meetings at a cost of just £5. Membership details are on our website at or call the Secretary on 01256 331002.
