Launch of David Tyson Memorial Fund

20th March 2017

David Tyson (1948 – 2015) was a highly respected Permanent Way Engineer and was considered one of the best in the business, influencing major railway projects and inspiring many. The David Tyson Memorial Fund has been established in his memory and will provide financial support to enable young people to develop their skills and pursue a career within the engineering/ rail engineering field.

The Fund will support budding young rail engineers with grants that will cover the following costs:


  • Course fees;
  • Accreditation;
  • Resources such as books or additional computer software;
  • Travel to courses and training sites;
  • Equipment, materials or tools to enable young people to take up training; and
  • Work-based training costs.

The process for young individuals to make applications to The David Tyson Memorial Fund is currently being co-ordinated, with further details to follow in due course.

More about David’s inspiring life and career can be read about on the Fund page. If you would like to contribute to David’s legacy then please see the Fund’s BTMyDonate page. BTMyDonate is a simple and secure online giving platform that allows you to make an immediate online payment.
