The Class 56 Group

Update July 2022

The C56G AGM took place on Saturday 23rd July at the East Lancashire Railway in Bury.

The meeting was reasonably well attended and two members attended by remote video link.

A group picture appears below. On the Sunday a team of 7 volunteers set to work on 56006 and the main accomplishment was the fitting of a tarpaulin over the full length of the locomotive. Not an easy task and the weather was rather poor as can be seen.

A full report on the proceedings on the day will appear in Gridiron in due course.

AGM attendees pose in front of 56006 shortly after the meeting concluded.

The inset image shows the tarps fitted, and also gives an indication of the weather on the Sunday.
