April club meeting – Monday 14th April

Monday’s film show will consist of two films one steamy (Engines not other sort) and one not so.

The first film is a rather charming look at the Raleigh bicycle factory in 1945, showing the process of manfacture from desing through to testing. This film comes from a recently available archive of British films produced post Word War II it is an interesting and sometimes humorous look back at a manafacturing production of a Great British product.

The second film comes courtsey of British Rail, a 1953 documentary showing Class 5 engine numbered 73020 going ‘on shed’ and shows the proceedures that a locomotive goes through as part of its regular mainenance cycle. A fastinating film giving insight to the everyday workings on the railway when it was still powered by the good stuff.

Hope to see you all there for this interesting and entertaining springtime film show!
