Transport and Machinery

At WR2 5SN Monthly on Wed at 2pm at Rushwick Village Hall WR2 5TA or visits as arranged. (Both time and day of visits may vary, depending on the requirements of the place visited.)

Under Links (top right) are two videos that got squeezed out at the Jan 16 meeting.

Leader and Contact: D Barrett.

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.
