On Tuesday 30th August, Steve Murphy, CEO of MTR UK, was honoured to be part of a special ceremony at London Marylebone station that saw the unveiling of a nine-foot bronze statue and plinth of legendary railway man and engineer Adrian Shooter CBE. Adrian, who started his career with British Rail in 1970, is considered one of the leading architects of the modern railway, and the tribute recognises his huge contributions and accomplishments to passenger and freight services.
The statue, which was crowd funded by current industry leaders and close associates of Adrian was unveiled in front of 100 guests with a keynote speech by ex-Transport Secretary The Rt Hon Lord McLoughlin CH PC and a thank you from Adrian himself.
