The first social evening was held on Thursday, 12 September 2019. We were delighted that Bob Meanley, who had recently stepped down as Chief Engineer of Tyseley Locomotive Works after 20 years in the role, had agreed to give a talk entitled Looking Back. Les Ross, who is well-known for his time at BRMB, joined us for the evening and was in discussion with Bob after Bob’s talk – audience involvement was encouraged. A complimentary finger buffet was included in the evening.

Any suggestions for these, and future, events are welcome; please see the Contact Us page for details of how to contact the Friends.
