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 -


"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.
