ASTT’s 2021 Annual Conference

The 18th of September saw the 6th Annual Conference of the Advanced Steam Traction Trust. A return to the normal format of hosting the conference in person was also boosted by the addition of a zoom call allowing for our overseas membership to partake in the Q&A sessions win the presentations as well as offering their knowledge and experience.

With the success of the Zoom feature, ASTT conferences will look to host both the conferences and AGMs with a dial in feature.

 With seven presentations as well as a visit to the Stapleford Railway the 2021 conference covered a lot of material.
