Having taken into account wishes of the membership this new type of conference will be led by Jonathan  Aylen and Dr Fred Starr. Based in Middlesbrough in NE England it will focus on the rich, engineering and industrial history of the Teesside area.

A steam locomotive under construction at Darlington Locomotive Works.
Darlington North Road Station on the Stockton to Darlington Railway.
Ascent of the fully working Middlesbrough Transporter Bridge; visits to other historic and noteworthy Tees Bridges.
Friday tour to sites in Hartlepool, north of the Tees
