Just to let you know that there will be a reunion of railwaymen and women at the Leyland & Farington
Social Club on Friday August 3rd at 19.00 hrs. Admission free and all are welcome. This is to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the official end of steam traction on the former B.R. system.

I have written two books for the commemoration, one on Lostock Hall engine shed and another on the railway system around Preston. The latter should be of interest as it deals mainly with the LNW system in and around Preston. Many hitherto unpublished photos.

Further to this I have ordered a plaque which will be fitted to one of the buildings on the main island platform at Preston. This plaque will commemorate the final steam-hauled passenger service train which ran to Liverpool Exchange on the evening of August 3rd 1968.

Hope this will be of interest to your worthy society.
Best regards, Bob Gregson.
