Collection remembering the golden age of steam
4:20pm Tuesday 22nd October 2013 in News
A COLLECTION of rail memorabilia belonging to a leading rail enthusiast has been donated to the Malvern Industrial Archaeology Circle.
Gerald Wadley, who died earlier this year, was a leading light in the formation of the Worcester Locomotive Society in 1960.
The collection includes photographs taken during the late 1950s of steam locomotives near Mr Wadley’s home in Malvern Link and further afield.
People will be able to see some of these historic photographs at a reunion of local railwaymen organised by Malvern Industrial Archaeology Circle and Worcester Locomotive Society on Saturday, October 26, at Oldbury Park Primary School, St John’s, Worcester. Doors open at noon, admission is free, and all are welcome.
Andrew Smith of Malvern Industrial Archaeology Circle said: “The reunion is always a popular event and we’re expecting about 400 people to turn up.
“We’re very grateful to Mr Wadley’s family for donating his collection to us.”
