Magnettes & Steam 6th May 2019

This year Magnettes & Steam wasn't the first event of the season, moving from Easter Saturday to May Bank Holiday, but it nevertheless attracted a good turnout of Magnettes to Norchard station on the Dean Forest Railway in Gloucestershire. The former branch line runs for about 4 miles from Lydney to Parkend through beautiful forest scenery.

Magnettes & Spies, Bletchley Park, 20th April 2019

This year it was decided to have the season's Easter opening event indoors as the weather at this time can be very unreliable – so of course it turned out to be wall to wall sunshine and the thermometer soared to the mid-twenties for our visit to the WWII Codebreakers museum near Milton Keynes

Saturday 15th September, there we were again, the stalwarts and a few new faces lined up in the club "paddock" just as in years gone by, the only difference this year was the beautiful more September like weather.
