Tay Rail Bridge Disaster Memorial Trust Donation

Dundee Museum of Transport was delighted to receive a cheque for £2427.73 from the recently dissolved Tay Rail Bridge Disaster Memorial Trust on Friday 24th March. With the Trust achieving its objective to erect memorials to those who lost their lives in the 1879 disaster, left-over funds were donated to Dundee Museum of Transport for a Tay Rail Bridge disaster display. Trustees and volunteers from both the Tay Rail Bridge Disaster Memorial Trust and Dundee Museum of Transport attended the cheque ceremony on Friday evening where Professor David Swinfen formally presented the funds to Museum Chairman, Jimmy McDonell.

Donation from The Weaver Incorporation of Dundee

Dundee Museum of Transport would like to thank The Weaver Incorporation of Dundee for their generous donation of £70 following their enjoyable visit to the museum on 13th December 2016. The group received a guided tour from our team of volunteers and enjoyed having ‘tea on the bus’ after their tour. Deacon David Edgar dropped by the museum this afternoon to hand in the donation which was gratefully received by the Museum Manager.
