I think this is a case of caveat emptor, as while “vintage trains” are promised, they seem to be a footnote to a larger event.

Basically, it is the 100th anniversary of Birmingham Moor Street Station on Saturday, so Chiltern Railways are hosting an event at London’s Marylebone Station. There is a certain logic to this bizare idea, as they happen to run trains between the two cities.

We are promised some Bollywood Dancing, samples of Birmingham’s best food, from the “Taste of Birmingham”, and displays from 17 specially chosen companies firms who stumped up the exhibition fee.

Oh, and Vintage Trains.

This Thursday from 11am to 7pm.

This website has been running now for over a decade, and while advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, it doesn't cover the costs. That is why I have set up a facility with DonorBox where you can contribute to the costs of the website and time invested in writing and research for the news articles.

It's very similar to the way The Guardian and many smaller websites are now seeking to generate an income in the face of rising costs and declining advertising.

Whether it's a one-off donation or a regular giver, every additional support goes a long way to covering the running costs of this website, and keeping you regularly topped up doses of Londony news and facts.

If you like what you read on here, then please support the website here.

Thank you

    I have an odd affinity for Chiltern, having previously lived on the Chiltern line and Chiltern Railways doing a good job. Shame the event is on a weekday though!
