Donation

We, the Nine Elms Enginemen’s Reunion, have made a donation of £100 to St. Michaels Hospice who looked after our 'young' friend Steve West up until his last days with us.

A small ‘tribute’ has been attached to the donation;

STEVE WEST – GOD BLESS
Steve West was a well-respected railway colleague without doubt. He was also part of the small organisation that arranged the annual 'Nine Elms Enginemen's Reunion' that is held on the Bluebell Railway in Sussex. Steve's legacy is that he leaves behind his numerous photographs, taken over many years, of successive events that captured the fellowship and camaraderie of those involved in the 'Age of Steam', we are indeed indebted to our old friend.

GUILDFORD MPD PLAQUE

A plaque has been made to commemorate the 50th Anniversary of the closing of Guildford Motive Power Depot (70C) and the end of steam on the Southern Region. The design is very similar in style to other plaques placed at historic areas throughout Guildford and will be a fitting tribute to all men that worked at the depot over the past decade. Two of the etchings on the plaque, one showing two Class 700 locomotives and the other, U Class 31633 departing Guildford are from photographs taken by Richard Greenwood MBE (with his kind permission). The third etching of USA Class 30072 on the final day of steam is from a photograph taken by the late Dave Salmon.

The plaque was unveiled on Sunday 9th July 2017 at the Multi-Storey Car Park, Farnham Road, Guildford. Seen here are (left to right), Bill Moore, Geoff Burch, Richard Greenwood MBE and Pat Kinsella.

It was agreed that any money over and above the cost of the plaque would be donated equally to Woking Homes and the Phyllis Tuckwell Hospice, Farnham and in fact £153.13 was donated to both.
