Members Zoom Meeting

1972 ARE Visit to Indonesia

In August 1972 the Australian Association of Railway Enthusiasts ran two 3-week tours to Java, Madura and Sumatra. At that time Indonesia was alive with an amazing variety of steam locomotives. Frank Stamford was on the first of these and will present photographs and commentary on some of the highlights of the extensive tour.

Trades Hall banner room collection

Mr Neale Towart will present a history of the heritage listed Trades Hall building in Sydney and particularly detailing the superb Trades’ Union banner collection housed therein. Early State railway, tramway, mining and metal working union banners, of the large type once used in marches, are on display. The detail on these banners is spectacular. Guaranteed to be a fascinating evening!
