Zoom meetings only at the moment

Good to see a program of events ... here's a sample from from where you can navigate to other branches.   The format of "members can register automatically, none-members are welcome but must approach the local secretary for an invite" appears standard all across

Monday 22nd February - Maidenhead – Zoom virtual 
Creating a Railway Timetable
Gawain Nicholson – Assistant Permanent Diagramming Manager | Great Western Railway 19:30

If you are society member, please login to access the registration link for this meeting.
Otherwise please contact Sally Goddard, for an invitation.
All members and non-members are very welcome to attend.
There is no charge but donations are welcome.
