The Friends of Vintage Trains is holding its first social evening on Thursday, 12 September 2019, at the Tyseley WMC, just across the road from Tyseley Locomotive works, at 6.30 p.m. We are delighted that 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. Les Ross, who is well-known for his time at BRMB, will be joining us for the evening and will be in discussion with Bob after Bob’s talk – audience involvement is encouraged.

    • 6.30: Doors open. Complimentary tea/coffee/biscuits available.

Free car parking will be available at the Tyseley Locomotive Depot car park; the gates will close at 6.55pm.. There are a limited number of seats so please register for this social using the registration form – entry to the evening may be refused unless you have registered.
