Since the early days of the Circle there have always been other activities in addition to the Tuesday evening club nights and formal meetings. During the 1950s and 1960s when branch line closures were happening on a regular basis, many "last day" trips were made by the Circle. Other trips of a more general railway nature were also undertaken. he four photographs below recorded, a visit to the Malmsbury branch, the last day of the passenger service on the Garw branch in South Wales with Circle members in Nantymoel signal box (photograph: E.T. Gill), a visit to Thornbury which had closed to passengers in 1940 but was still open for goods, and a visit to Sudbrook on the Welsh side of the River Severn and site of one of the pumping stations for the Severn Tunnel. . .
