FYI - I contacted GWR and asked for the date of the next Meet The Manager session at Paddington.  This is on 1st December between 16:00 and 19:00

With thanks to you for providing the information, NickB, I've now added it to the Coffee Shop forum calendar.  Smiley

William Huskisson MP was the first person to be killed by a train while crossing the tracks, in 1830.  Many more have died in the same way since then.  Don't take a chance: stop, look, listen.

Finishing just in time to wave off the 19.03!

Are these open for anyone to attend? Or do you have to book?

Where in Paddington will it be?

Usually just turn up and harangue. Likely to either have a desk set up or floor walking the concourse.

I haven't heard otherwise (nor seen any promo materials) so I presume that this is still going ahead tomorrow.

Can't wait. 😍

......well the trains can't be relied upon to turn up, so why should the management be any different?
