The CILT Scottish Region Archives 2012

Welcome to the Scottish Region Archives for 2012. These contain old meeting and visit reports.

The New Year began with a presentation on the Borders Railway and was followed by the Annual Scottish Region Political Event, this year addressed by Councillor Brian Collins. Next came a presentation on the "Royal Scotsman" and in March, the first event was a presentation on the Commonwealth Games Transport Plan and how Glasgow is planning to cope with the event in 2014. Throughout March, there were a number of visits to the ScotRail Simulator Centre and the final event before the Easter break was a presentation on how the Scottish Transport System serves tourists.

After the summer break, the first event was a visit and trip on the Barrhill Community Bus. This was followed by a visit to the Port of Ayr. The Scottish Region was held on the 27th September in Glasgow and this was followed by a presentation by Phil Flanders on the Role of the RHA. Alex Nelson addressed the Edinburgh meeting on 16 October on "Chester-le-track, a 21st Century Booking Office". David Spaven spoke on "Mapping Britain's Railways" at the Edinburgh meeting on 30 October 2012.

The first meeting in November took the form of a visit to ASDAs' Falkirk RDC and this included a visit to the new Grangemouth facility. Next came a presentation of "Conserving Scotland's Maritime Heritage" by Jim Tildesley. This was followed by an interesting talk on the St. Andrews Rail Link, which received media coverage in the local newspaper. Chris MacRae spoke on the Role of the FTA in Scotland in Glasgow at the end of November and the last meeting of the year, in Edinburgh, was a presentation by Keith Geddes on the John Muir Way.
