A bright sunny morning at Bursledon Brickworks Museum. The second half of our group has boarded the train at the level crossing on the Mineral Railway for the tour. Our 'outgoing' Membership secretary, Alan Welsh, is furthest from camera in the trio to the left.<br>[&copy; Duncan Finch 2019]

The most peculiar 'Woodside Halt', terminus of the narrow gauge public run and, despite appearances, it doesn't move (it didn't!)<br>[&copy; Duncan Finch 2019]

Eastleigh Lakeside Railway, a photo stop in the evening sun just after completing Monks Brook station scissors crossover (left of the signal at the rear off the train). Our 'esteamed' organiser of this excellent weekend, member Bill Davis keeps a low profile (he is the one in a high viz vest.)<br>[&copy; Duncan Finch 2019]
