Welcome to the Vintage Trains Society

Welcome to the web site for the Vintage Trains Society (VTS), the volunteer support organisation for Vintage Trains. All members share a common interest to preserve steam and railway heritage for the current and future generations. VTS was formerly known as the Friends of Birmingham Railway Museum.

Members of VTS provide support in many ways, including a range of volunteering opportunities on the Tyseley Locomotive Works site, on the trains and becoming involved in the running of the Society. Members who are unable to become involved in the volunteering opportunities can rest assured that all of the funds raised by VTS are donated to restoration projects, and to support the activities of the Society.

VTS is affiliated to the Birmingham Heritage Forum; Forum membership is drawn from organisations concerned with collections, historic sites, museums, galleries, churches, gardens and visitor services within the Birmingham area.
