9 Oct.  Bob Bunyar - Exeter to Exeter via Plymouth. This is a photographic trip down the GWR Route to Plymouth and back by the SR route including some of the branch lines.

13 Nov.  Christian Wolmar - To the Edge of the World. Christian Wolmar is the author of a book with this title.  His story is of the Trans-Siberian Railway from its conception and construction under Tsar Alexander III, to the northern extension, the Baikal Amur Mainline, the world’s costliest rail project ordered by Brezhnev.  The Trans-Siberian may have been an overambitious project, but today it is a vital artery for Siberia, and its construction changed history.

11 Dec. Brian Arman - Broad Gauge Part 1: London to Bristol. Canon Brian Arman is a railway enthusiast with special knowledge of the Great Western Railway, one of his activities being the collection of photographs showing broad gauge trains in the second half of the 19th century until abolition of the gauge in 1892.  His talk is the first of three on this subject.  It is longer than usual talks, billed to end at 10:15 pm.
