The Transport and Machinery Group embraces all aspects of transport and static machinery. There is no restriction on numbers so if you're interested, do come along - the more the merrier! Although I am acting as Group co-ordinator for administrative purposes I am not any kind of expert. As a result I look to members to give presentations on their particular interests, propose visits and otherwise contribute to the Group.
