Welcome to the web site for The Friends of Vintage Trains, the volunteer support organisation for Vintage Trains. All members share a common interest to preserve steam and railway heritage for the current and future generations.
All members are invited to our first social evening on Thursday, 12 September 2019 where Bob Meanley, who has recently stepped down as managing director of Tyseley Locomotive Works after 20 years in the role, has agreed to give a talk entitled Looking Back.
Members of The Friends of Vintage Trains provide support in many ways, including a range of volunteering opportunities on the Tyseley Locomotive Works site, on the trains and becoming involved in the running of the Society. Members who are unable to become involved in the volunteering opportunities can rest assured that all of the funds raised by The Friends of Vintage Trains are donated to restoration projects and to support the activities of the Friends.
The Friends of Vintage Trains is affiliated to the Birmingham Heritage Forum; Forum membership is drawn from organisations concerned with collections, historic sites, museums, galleries, churches, gardens and visitor services within the Birmingham area.
