Happy 90th Birthday to the Societys founding President.

The committee of the Pennine Journey Supporters Club were pleased to be able to mark the 90th birthday of its founding President, Ron Scholes, who is a train enthusiast, with the gift of a picture (taken by member Dr Richard Wozniak) of a steam train arriving at Settle station. Ron, who drew the wonderful route maps and vignettes for the pictorial guide, was a personal friend of Alfred Wainwright and delighted to get the picture.

In his 'thank you' letter he said "...it is especially appropriate to receive this superb picture bearing in mind that Wainwright came to Settle on a steam train to begin his Pennine Journey. Equally, my senses have been uplifted to see a "puffer" on the magnificent Settle-Carlisle Line"

The picture was presented to Ron at his home near Stoke-on-Trent by the editors of the guide book David and Heather Pitt.
