What Do We Do

STICK exists to promote the care and enjoyment of transport and industry collections. We do this by running two events each year – a Spring AGM with talks and an Autumn conference. We develop projects and partnership working to encourage wider engagement with transport and industry collections across Scotland.


STICK aims to:

  • Develop opportunities to advance acquisition, care, development, research and interpretation of transport and industry collections in Scotland
  • Identify key issues facing the long-term stewardship and development of transport and industry collections and work together to tackle these
  • Promote, encourage and advance access to  Scottish transport and industrial collections through a variety of mechanisms
  • Support informed, efficient and confident decision making in the acquisition and long-term care of transport and industrial heritage across Scotland
