Just booked my tickets for the 13th. Chingford (London) - Kidderminster £8.90 each way with railcard. Bargain.

I was just going to suggest we confirm the 13th now that Christmas and New Year are out of the way. But as David has bought his tickets that is decided! I shall put a thread on the main board to attract those who may not venture into "Other Discussion".

Not for the first time I'm afraid I have to pull out. A therapy organisation I'm part of has a meeting and they want to adopt a new constitution; as I wrote the dratted thing I think I probably need to be there :(

Hope it's a good day; perhaps I'll make the next one.

Only three days to the Meet Up.

Suggest meet in SVR Booking Office at Kidderminster at 12.00.

Mine's a Pint!

Cheers

Well, for those of us there it was excellent - the Titanic Anchor was superb (that's a beer for those who do not know!).

Discussion on a visit to York - I will leave it to others to get this going as a new thread!

Cheers

Excellent indeed. We did see the signalling exhibits in the museum as well as the beer.

Yes a very enjoyable day.

We did mention York as a possible venue for 2017 but all other suggestions welcome.

Apologies for not being an exhibit myself this time, those who were there hopefully know why but I'm not going to tell anybody else, so there!

I'm game for York or other suggestions but those of us in the SRS may go there once a year for a meeting anyway? Not that I have been lately, the last time I tried I (cough) turned up a week later than everybody else!

Indeed, most convivial (goes to look for the OED, to make sure that's what I mean. :) ]
Thanks and appreciation to all attending.

There were in fact seven of us. For the record that is JRB, StevieG, Richard Lemon, David Holden, Stuart Johnson, scarpa and myself. Well we enjoyed ourselves and despite earlier concerns, although the King and Castle did get a bit busy with football supporters (I presume!) we were firmly installed by then and they all left about 2:30.
