Our next talk will be held on Tuesday 11th September, 7:00pm in the Small Ballroom at The Grange, Carleton Community Centre.

Entitled “Transports of Delight – the Orient Express and other stories about trains”, this illustrated talk is presented by Kevin Trickett.

I have been fascinated by trains since I was a child and I know I’m not the only whose heart beats faster on seeing a steam train!
Having travelled from Venice to London on the style icon that is the Venice-Simplon Orient Express a few years ago, I began thinking about how luxury train travel has evolved and this talk tells the story not only of my own journeys by train but also something of the history of the golden era of rail travel. You don’t have to be train buff to enjoy this talk, just someone who enjoys the romance of luxury travel.
Admission: £2 for members, £4 for non members – payable on the door. Refreshments included.
