BCLM, Wroxall and AGM - 2-3 July 2016

On Saturday morning about 12 Magnettes assembled at the Black Country Living Museum, along with a couple of other MGs and owners without their Magnettes. The day was overcast to start, with light rain, but not enough to spoil our enjoyment of the museum, which really brings to life the industrial history of the area with reconstructed buildings and machinery, populated by a ‘cast’ in period costume and appropriate accents. The tour of a real drift mine and the demonstration of chain-making by hand were particularly fascinating.

Magnettes & Steam - 26th March

As usual the first event of the UK season was Magnettes & Steam, at the Peak Rail Rowsley South centre. Although the railway only runs just over 3 miles from Rowsley to Matlock, it has a fascinating history, being part of the Midland line from Derby to Manchester, which required many engineering challenges to be overcome through the Derbyshire hills, as well as negotiations with the landowners of Chatsworth and Haddon Hall.
