THE FRIENDLY MIDLAND RED
Transport Author, Roger Torode, has recorded a presentation entitled:
The Friendly Midland Red
In an extensively illustrated presentation, Roger talks us through the 70-year history of this fascinating company, covering: its substantial growth from early horse bus operations through to its segmentation prior to privatisation; its distinctive and largely self-build vehicle policy; its people; its style; and its similarities (and differences) with parallel developments in London.
Congratulations to our You Tube Producer, Alexander Zalicks, for successfully completing a 13 mile trek on 5th June and raising over £800 in support of the Alzheimers' Society. Special thanks to those Friends who kindly supported Alex in his challenge.
