(Crewe Lyceum, Sept 18)

After his hugely successful evening with The Flying Scotsman, local TV programme maker, David Parker, returns to Crewe Lyceum with another illustrated talk, this time about the revival of steam railways in England and Wales.

The evening will be a joyous celebration of the men and women who saved some of the country’s most picturesque branch lines and the steam engines they rescued from the scrap heap to run on them.

You'll hear their incredible stories, and see glorious shots of the steam engines they rebuilt, running on lines they brought back to life.

The show has special guest Bryan Skellon, who is 90 years of age and a retired worker at Crewe Works.

The show will also include a 20 minute interval, for people to plan accordingly.

This is a must for anyone, young or old, who has fallen in love with the steam engines of the past and want to learn more from those who have seen their development at first hand.
