Topic & Speaker:"The Strathspey Railway" by Douglas Norris, chair Strathspey Railway

Scotland’s most scenic heritage railway, the Strathspey, follows the old route of the Highland Main Line from its own platform at Aviemore Station amid forested settings to Boat of Garten and then through glorious open countryside to Broomhill, which was Glenbogle in the television series “Monarch of the Glen”. Our journey will be steam-hauled, and there will be the opportunity to admire the growing fleet of steam and vintage diesel traction. The Railway receives through workings from the main line including The Royal Scotsman, and aspires to extend to Grantown-on-Spey when Transport Scotland are able to accommodate it in a long-awaited upgrade of the A95. We shall meet in time for the 1245 train from Aviemore on which refreshments are available, and while one group is making the journey, another can visit the locomotive shed, swapping over at half-time.
Cost & Booking:Tickets purchased on the day. Booking through Corby is required. Quote booking code SR0xxx. There is a limit of 30 attendees.
Refreshments will be served en route.

Topic & Speaker:"Scotland's milestones" by Bruce Keith, author, historian and environmentalist

In the days before satnav, our predecessors ascertained their sense of distance and direction from milestones, which were made a statutory requirement under the Turnpike Acts of the eighteenth century. Today they have become treasured furniture of our roadside verges, and tell the story of how our transport networks - canal and rail as well as road - have evolved. Chartered surveyor and bridge historian Bruce Keith will use his new book celebrating our milestones to follow some of the great journeys that have left an indelible mark on our national psyche - pilgrims en route to the shrines of the saints, the Jacobite Army on its march south and then retreating homewards to defeat at Culloden, then less than thirty years later the itinerary of Johnson and Boswell that helped lay the foundations of Scottish tourism.
Cost & Booking:Members: Free; Non-Members: £5.00. Booking through Corby is required. Quote booking code SR0xxx.
