Binari for Summer 2017 arrives

Binari the Italian Railways Society Journal arrived today- always a good read.

The Society is reaching its 30th Anniversary and there is an interesting layout competition for the 2018 AGM which I am tempted to enter.

On the rear cover is a photo of Manarola* railway station on the north west coast of Italy, between Genoa and Pisa. Its location has some similarities with Dawlish on the Devon coast of S.W. England, but has a more dramatic  location with the railway line better protected from the sea!

(Manarola* is a small town, a frazione of the commune of Riomaggiore, in the province of La Spezia, Liguria, northern Italy. It is the second smallest of the famous Cinque Terre towns frequented by tourists.)
