ANNUAL MEMBERS’ MEETING followed by VIVARAIL (D-STOCK REVIVED)
The 2017 Friends Annual Report, including the financial statements, will be posted on the members section of the Friends website, under the heading “Friends News archive”, in advance of the meeting.
After the conclusion of the Annual Members’ Meeting business, there will be a presentation by Adrian Shooter, chief executive of Vivarail.
Following the Friends’ recent visit to the Vivarail premises in Warwickshire, Adrian Shooter will talk about how the company is converting and refurbishing former London Underground District Line D78 stock into diesel multiple units for further use on the national railway network. West Midlands Trains is planning to be the first operator of the trains in passenger service on the Bedford-Bletchley line later this year. A battery-powered version is also being developed.
