  1. Final evening talk for IRRS Manchester on Thursday 14 April “With Lance King in Ulster 1957 – 1970 - The NCC in Action” by Leslie McAllister 14th April, doors at 18:00, talk to commence at 18:30. This event will be a little different; Leslie McAllister will present online from home, whilst the committee will be at The Waldorf in central Manchester, close to Manchester Piccadilly station. As usual, we will have a selection of secondhand books and signed copies of Ted McAvoy's new book on the fast disappearing Bord Na Mona network to buy on the night. You can register to attend by Zoom - https://us02web.zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_Xug6lt_cQlCZNIws4Qnd8Q "Leslie McAllister presents a third selection of the photography of Lance King, We will enjoy Lance’s colour images of the remaining lines of the former Northern Counties Railway (the NCC) and the activities of its locomotives both on their home lines and on the Great Northern. Lance also photographed modern diesel units, so a period of change is faithfully recorded. Lance travelled on many of the early RPSI tours and the period concludes with the famous Stone Trains. A heady mixture of nostalgia, brilliantly recorded by a master photographer in a presentation with an additional 50 photographs since presented to previously to the London area so there is sure to be something new for you to enjoy". Note from me, the presenter, Lance took stuppendous shots of the Spoil Trains, so a great chance to see loads of them (sixty to be precise!) as well as the famed 2-6-4Ts on passenger and specials. Spoiler alert - I've sneaked in a few of Henry Casserley's NCC piccies as well. If you have problems getting registered, PM me. Leslie
  2. Folks, I can't recommend this talk too much. The detailed story of Steam's Last Triumph. Joe was there when all this happened, knew the loco crews and can give you a taste of what a remarkable operation this was. He has given the talk before, but it will now be enhanced by colour slides taken by my late friend, Lance King, who took over a hundred brilliant slides in wonderful weather (honest). For you Game of Thrones fans, this was Steam's contribution to the building of the future Castle Black (Magheramorne Quarry). That's enough overselling - see you on Thursday! Leslie (for IRRS London) TOMORROW’S MEETING (ONLINE via Zoom) 19.00 Thursday 18 March 2021 "UTA/NIR Spoil Trains of 1966-70" by Joe Cassells The UTA/NIR Spoil Trains were the last great challenge for Irish steam. Over 3½ years, WT Class 2-6-4T locos operated 7600 trains carrying over 4m tons of spoil from Magheramorne to Greencastle. Lifetime recorder of the railway scene, Joe Cassells, keenly observed the operation but now using previously unavailable information, he has produced the definitive description of it - its conception, its planning, and day-to-day activity. There is a special focus on the locomotives and enginemen but through word and photos, Joe gives us a full insight to this impressively successful project. If you saw Joe’s similar presentation to the RPSI in February, it could be well worth watching again. This talk will be an enhanced version of the February presentation. It will include many more colour images (taken by Lance King). It will include additional information about the procurement of the wagons, industrial relations issues relating to the selection and rostering of loco crews and some alternative (somewhat “off the wall”) ideas put forward by the government in the early planning stages. And as ever, watching any talk a second time always reveals detail that you had already forgotten or not paid proper attention to first time round!
