However, as from today all references relating to personal addresses, telephone numbers and or Email addresses will not be published.

I am pleased to announce that Phil White has volunteered to take over the role of Secretary of the association.
I propose that Phil takes over formally at the conclusion of our meeting in September.
I’ve been advised that an ex colleague John Gardiner has passed away. Limited details but I understand he was suffering with Lymes disease.
I worked with John at Waterloo and then at Southampton.
He left after about 14 years service in the early 2000’s and had recently been working as a train driver.
I’m sure some of the older members will remember John.
