On 8th September 2019, Buckinghamshire Freemason Andy Barr arranged for 12 autistic train enthusiasts plus their carers and parents to take a trip on a vintage train on the London Underground between Amersham and Harrow on the Hill
The group travelled in 1950's carriages pulled by a vintage Metropolitan Line Electric Locomotive Sarah Siddons, which is the oldest working electric locomotive in the world still owned by the original company. The trip, which was courtesy of the London Transport Museum who donated the tickets, was part of the Old Amersham Heritage Day.
Andy is a member of Frederick Lawson Lodge No, as well as the Treasurer of the Beaconsfield ‘Freemasonry in the Community’ initiative.
Sarah Snow of the charity Engine Shed wrote a letter saying: ‘We had a wonderful day out on the Sarah Siddons trip from Amersham. Members from both our adult group and our children's group came along with parents and carers and enjoyed a vintage journey.
‘Most of us also took the vintage bus into Amersham town where a fair was taking place on the high street. Thank you to the Freemasons of Buckinghamshire for this memorable day out!'
