Join us this October as Ron Yee presents a look at the fascinating rail operations in two of “The Lands Down Under,” Australia and New Zealand, from his extended March-April 2015 visit.
While in Australia, Ron photographed the trams, rapid transit, commuter and tourist railroads of Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane and Gold Coast. Then from New Zealand, Ron will present photographs of rail operations in Wellington, Auckland, the tourist operations of the Taeri Gorge Railway in Dunedin and the Trans Alpine Express near Christchurch. Finally, if time permits, Ron will close with a brief look at current scenes in London and Paris from his visits there this past summer. It promises to be an unforgettable evening!
Preceding our October show in the same room, the 2016 Annual Membership Meeting of the Electric Railroaders’ Association, Inc. will start promptly at 7:15 PM. All ERA members are encouraged to attend. Ron’s presentation will follow the Annual Membership Meeting.
