The origins of the 22E Society started in the summer of 1946 22E was the code for the small locomotive shed at Highbridge, Somerset. The author's real interest in railways started in 1946 when he purchased his first Ian Allen ABC and what better place to spot locomotives than at Highbridge station, like most stations it had it's compliment of “loco spotters”. Although he did not realise it at the time this was the beginning of the 22E Society. By 1949/1950 changes were taking place in the group of spotters, they were all leaving school and such things as work, higher education, National Service and girl friends were taking priority over their latest locomotive sighting. Group contact had all but disappeared by 1954 and it was not until 1982 that the 22E Society was rejuvenated and our lifelong friendships renewed. .is is a wonderful collection of photographs and memories of the days of steam and of how the friendships forged all those years ago in the 22E society have stood the test of time.
