Mainly For Brummies But All Are Welcome To Join In The Birmingham Fun & Chat
New Street Station
This is the place where Brummies used to chat about Birmingham old and new along with anything else that interests us.
We have Quizzes, Pizzas, Local History, News, Politics, Wedding Cake, Plum Pudding, Champagne, Easter Eggs and, above all, Respect for our fellow members.
At last the plans have been passed for the "NEW" New Street Station Re-Build. work is to start later this year anlets now see our great city get the Rail Station it deserves. New Street Station handles 40 million people per year. It's used by 140,000 people per day. In 1967 it was rebuilt to handle 60,000 people per day. Hopefully our new station won't be another eyesore.

Do not take life too seriously - you are not going to get out of it alive anyway.
I must be old fashioned, I like a building that is a building. Bricks & mortar and not plastic, glass and glue. I just wonder how many of these multi million pound edifices will still be around when St Martins & St Phillips, The Council House and the BMAG finally fall down.
