Mike Birkinshaw

It is with great sadness that we report the passing of another former DPS committee member and volunteer, Mike Birkinshaw, who lost his battle with cancer earlier today. Mike served on the committee as Financial Secretary between 1992 and 2002, and was heavily involved in negotiations with VSOE in 1998 which saw two of our locos return to the main line the following year. He was also one of the society’s drivers, and drove all three of our Deltics at many railways all over the country. Our condolences go to his wife, Linda, and family.
