Introduction

The 2016 UK Transport Tycoon Forums meet is planned to take place in London on the 9th July. We will initially be congregating at The Thirsty Bear pub on Stamford Street for drinks and lunch. We will then head to the London Transport Museum in the afternoon. If there's any interest, we may go down to the East End for a famous Brick Lane curry.
