Old Locomotive Committee A.G.M. 2011

My friend John Archer and I visited Liverpool on the 7th May 2011 for the 26th Annual General Meeting of the Old Locomotive Committee. Like last year's A.G.M, the meeting was held at the Liverpool Museum Store - there's a report on last year's meeting here. The 2011 AGM gave OLCO members a final chance to closely inspect 'Lion' before she is transferred to the new Liverpool Museum, later this year. There are a few pictures of the 2011 meeting here. OLCO now has its own website here. My own posts on the history of 'Lion' and OLCO's activities are here.

The preserved Liverpool Overhead coach I admired last year has already moved to the new museum, but there are no current plans for the Mersey Docks and Harbour Board shunter or 'Cecil Raikes' to go on public display so I've added more pictures to the sets I started last year.

Although steam-powered road traction doesn't really do it for me, I also took a few pictures of the preserved 'Sentinel' steam tractor which are here.
