Keeping the age of steam alive!

Introduced by Rob Foxon

7.30pm, Thursday 14th November at the Memorial Hall, Grimsby Road, Cleethorpes, N.E. Lincs, DN35 8AH

‘Railways Remembered’ film shows, introduced by Grimsby-born film historian Rob Foxon, were established 40 years ago following a trial screening during the spring of 1979 and have become a fixture in the transport enthusiast’s diary ever since. This has led to the discovery of many thousands of feet of otherwise lost film footage showing aspects of our railway heritage.

This special 40th anniversary special programme explores some of the most significant film finds, including all known surviving Midland Railway footage (1896 -1909), traditional railway civil engineering with steam navvies and a special local item on Cleethorpes promenade in the 1930’s, together with contributions from prominent amateur cameramen including the Wirksworth branch in Derbyshire, steam in East Anglia and trains at York in 1960. There’s a special item on Beyer Garratt articulated locomotives and a reminder of some much-loved film classics, being screened the way the original film makers intended us to see them – on FILM on the big screen!

Tickets: £7.00 at the door, or £6.50 in advance available from Classic Home Cinema, 138 Grimsby Road, Cleethorpes, Tel: 01472 291934.
