Another passenger / rail interest community group that's somehow missed our radar so far.

The Stephenson Locomotive Society (SLS) is "a Society that will give you in depth coverage of matters relating to locomotives and railway operation both old and new. The SLS is not just about steam locomotives and the study of our past but encompasses modern traction too. The SLS is a society with a hundred year history but is also looking forward" ... http://www.stephensonloco.org.uk/index.htm

Do we have any SLS members / connections on the Coffee Shop?

Got 'Steam Around Bristol' photo book which includes a shot of a pannier tank on a SLS special alongside Hotwells Road en route to Canons March.

I think it was another SLS special that I had my two sightings of an (original) GWR 3-car DMU on a special which ran from Cardiff to Cardiff via the Rhubarb Curve, North Somerset line (Pensford, Clutton, Radstock, Mells) to Frome then The Strawberry Line (Witham, Shepton Mallet, Cheddar, Axbridge, Congresbury, Yatton). The special then took the western curve at Bristol West to traverse the Portishead Line returning to TM and then finally travelling the Severn Beach Line and the Henbury Loop to Filton Junction where it reversed back to Cardiff. Both my observations were from the Filton Junction Signal Box where my school chums father was a signalman there and which I spent many hours there 'train spotting'.

Grahame, another organisation you might like to investigate is the LCGB, Locomotive Club Of Great Britain.
