Birmingham Page 5
The Birmingham Railway Museum Trust is at Tyseley in Birmingham. It held a open day in 2008. This Open day was the first for a number of years. Its Vintage Trains is the rail tours part, and has been very busy. Its engines are always top rate. It does overalls on engines at its Tyseley Locomotive Works, which is its engineering subsidiary at this site. I went on the Saturday to the open day as the London Midland Depot was also open only on that day.
