Farina News Spare Parts Brief History


The Club's AGM (Annual General Meeting) has, in the past, been held in the Midlands, and in more recent years at Swindon Railway Museum and the Midland Railway Centre at Ripley.

Satisfying everyone is a thankless task, but to be fair to those of a more Northerly or Southerly disposition, we have alternated in recent years.

The traveling needs of members living at further-flung points of the compass and different locations and their practicalities are always being considered. We are currently looking in the Midlands again at a very well known venue.

The A40 Farina Club has members all across the UK and a good number of international members, resulting in a widespread membership.

The friendly Wessex Group has for many years now held a spring and autumn meet near Southampton, with tea and cake on offer plus a raffle (with often-surprising prizes!) and sometimes a selection of spares for sale.

Members visit from a wide area and, if enough agree, the Group runs its "Isle of Wight Invasion" around mid-summer.

The Eastern Group

Location    :- Newmarket, usually twice a year.

Telephone :- 01638 551 800

The objective is to bring as many members of the eastern region together to enable them to use the club in a social and supportive manner.

At the time of writing we are a fledgling group, Trevor Parfitt, “Scotty”, has kindly offered his workshop at Red Lodge near Newmarket as a venue. We currently plan to meet there twice a year.

However given the distance people will need to travel we also want to have a presence at local steam fairs and other such rallies and hope to get as many A40’s together as possible.

We have our own Eastern Region Facebook page and will post events to the official club Facebook group , the Eastern forum on the website and anywhere where lovers of the A40 congregate.
