Alfie is the Rushden Historical Transport Society Social Club clubcat who, in classic cat fashion turned up as a stray and moved in. The society won C.A.M.R.A National Club of the Year in 2010 and looks like the best reason to take up train spotting since the parka came back into style. Keep up with Alfie and many handsome photos on his Facebook page.
This exceptionally friendly chap hangs out in a square flanked by a diners on one side and a Monastery on the other with a steady stream of tourists to make a fuss of him. When leaning to stroke him he launches himself into your hand!
