Introduction

The 2014 UK Transport Tycoon Forums meet is planned to take place in Glasgow on the 7th June. We will initially be congregating at The Lauder's pub on Sauchiehall Street for drinks and lunch. We will then head to the Riverside Museum of Transport and Travel in the afternoon.

As with previous years, we will not be able to accept responsibility for under-18s at the meet, so we respectfully ask that you do not attend if you are under 18 unless you are accompanied by a parent or guardian. As our initial venue is a public house, please be aware that entrance or service may be refused to under-18s. If this happens, I'm afraid we can't do anything to help you out.
