London Area Meetings

The CRC meets at St.Paul’s Church Centre, Rossmore Road, Marylebone, London NW1 6NJ. This is an attractive hall which offers a comfortable environment for our meetings. It is a short walk north from Marylebone station on the west side of the line. Rossmore Road crosses over the railway at the station throat. Bus routes 139 from Waterloo to West Hampstead and 189 from Brent Cross to Oxford Circus pass the door. It is outside the congestion charge zone and parking is free after 18.30 on both single yellow lines and meters.

Normal meetings resumed at Rossmore Road for the 2021/22 season in early September. Meetings are held on the second Thursday of each month from September through to July with an August break. Doors open at 18.30 for a 19.15 start. Refreshments are available and a varying collection of preowned foreign railway books is also available.

A small admission charge is made for attendance, and season tickets for the 2022/23 season will also be available offering further savings.

Zoom meetings proved popular during the lockdown and it is hoped that some meetings will be available simultaneously via Zoom or as a separate broadcast.

The last programme of the current season is on Thursday 14th July when Adrian Palmer will present “Trams and Trains in Ukraine”. This will be a mixed digital and slide show featuring recent digital images of the various tram systems and slides from a steam railtour in the 1990’s.

After the traditional August break the 2022/23 season starts in September -

Thursday 8th September: Vic Allen East Germany - digitised cine films.

Thursday 13th October: Geoff Plumb Portugal 1969/70 - scanned slides

Thursday 10th November: John Hunt Foreign Miscellany II - traditional slide show.

Thursday 8th December: Guenter Ockszo Foreign Travels - scanned slides

The programme for 2023 is being finalised but there are still one or two slots available. If you would like to present a whole or even half evening show please contact the Secretary           Adrian Palmer at akpalmer@talktalk.net or 07774 859871 to discuss.
