The National Traction Engine Trust

At the recent AGM in Durham, two senior and distinguished members of the Trust were made Honorary Members. This is an appropriate way to show appreciation and recognise the work of Dick Blenkinsop and Michael Davies both of whom have contributed much to our hobby and the Trust over a long period of time.

Dick's contribution includes his high standards of photography and his editorship of Steaming. Unfortunately he was unable to accept the Honorary Membership in person but this was done by his son, James who has recently been re-elected to the General Council. Michael was the driving force behind the Engine Owner's Code of Practice. although now revised, is very similar to the original one. He was also much involved in establishing the annual Driving Courses.
