Rails & Radio the BRARS magazine

Rails & Radio March 2018The latest issue is the March 2018 issue. It includes a report on the FIRAC congress in Vienna and draft minutes of the 2017 AGM.

G4EAN's copy arrived on 9th April.


As usual, our editor invites articles for the next issue.

AGM 2018
Arrangements for this year's AGM will be published here once they are finalised.

Our default plan is to repeat the arrangements for our AGM in 2017 and hold the AGM at the Brunswick Inn on a Saturday in October 2018. The difficulty with this plan is that we can't choose the date until July 2018 when the football fixtures for 2018 are announced (the Brunswick Inn
is very busy on match days and does not hire out rooms on those days).

If any BRARS member has a suggestion for an AGM venue, please contact Ian G4EAN
Our AGM in 2017 was held on Saturday 28th October at the Brunswick Inn in Derby, Ten members and one guest attended the meeting.
