Hi Stan

As it appeared that the 4th October may be a problem for some who were interested - I let Barrie know that I would be OK moving to 27th September and giving the steam gala a miss if that suited more members.

In terms of avoiding domestic strife, Sept 27th suits me. In that it leaves a clear weekend before Pickering and the "Railway at War" meet

Really sorry all, but I can't do the 27th, I'll try and make it on another occasion.

Had a feeling mentioning another date may prove to be an issue.

Can we stick with the original date of 4th October?

I'd prefer to stick with this coming weekend, the 27th.

Switching dates seems to be a swings and roundabouts thing in terms of the number of people that can make it.

I'm ok for September 27, this coming Saturday, or Saturday October 4 but 27th is best.

Tyne ripples



Whichever day we go we might be able to grab shots of panoramas of the River Tyne like this.

How about meeting on 27th September at 1.00pm in The Quayside pub - 35 Close, Newcastle upon Tyne, Tyne and Wear NE1 3RN.

It's on the riverside just under the High Level bridge. Within walking distance of The Sage and all the bridges and the old Ouseburn Industrial area is about a mile away.

Hopefully the afternoon start can accommodate those wishing to take some night shots, but if anyone is going to turn up later I'm sure we can exchange telephone numbers to find one another.

There's pay car parking adjacent to The Sage, and Baltic Centre for Contemporary Art at Gateshead Quayside. There's quite a big car park further east on the Newcastle Quayside outside The Hub café and cycling centre and its free. But its a bit of a walk back to the main part of the quayside although its really handy for the Ouseburn area and Byker Wall.

There is also couple of small pay and display car parks next to the Quayside pub.

For anyone traveling up from the south at the moment I would recommend avoiding the A1 Western Bypass. It's being upgraded so there are lane and junction closures

here's my best guess.

that's on the A167 past the Angle of the North and through Low Fell


Keep left as you come off the flyover and bear left down a bank just as you approach the Tyne Bridge. This will bring you over the Swing Bridge about 100yds from the pub
