    Is that sent to L&B members, EA members or donors to the appeal? Keith

    Agreed, it seems far too early to be jumping up and down hoping for a story to be had about not updating companies house. If nothing's happened in 3 weeks, maybe, but really, for now, stand down folks! Let's hope the new appointee manages to make...

    Press releases announcing a departure are normally notoriously dull affairs , scripted with all the stock phrases that leave you reading between the lines and pondering what happened This one had the one line in , and whether at us or elsewhere...

    On the face of it, that seems like an extremely suitable appointment. Fingers crossed. It would perhaps be helpful if it was outlined exactly what his responsibilities will be, as his list of skills covers quite a wide range! And on a personal...

  5. ghost liked Monkey Magic's post in the thread S&D Railway Trust and Washford Eviction Notice.

    My aim is good and true. I am not the one repetitively complaining about repetitiveness. It’s a railway forum, by its nature almost everyone is repetitive about something: complaining about a diesel in a railtour, red Jubilees, complaining about...

    Perhaps I haven't made it clear that, all things being equal, I would love to offer my full support to the WSR through these troubled times, having enjoyed 5 years as a volunteer there before we moved away, and having acted as an "interim"...

    A couple more from my visit last week, great to see 5239 back in action with its crisp bark and effortless hill climbing ... The PDSR is the place to be for the most intensive steam workings in the UK at the moment. [img] Setting up on the beach...

    Indeed, the universal railway language of out of fitting/moving range is the Kin. As in it's too Kin big or in the wrong Kin place etc...

    I haven't been following the precise intricacies of the latest sub-discussion, but my experience is that if you have a workshop open day, pretty well all work has to stop, simply because of the nature of the work - either because of fumes (such...

    I fully agree. This whole discussion is based on the observation of one person who, apparently, didn't see much happening with 53808 during a tour of Minehead Loco Shed last weekend. Maybe the relevant staff had the day off, it was at the...

    Blimey, do the majority of the recent posters work as TV drama script writers or something? Have they carried their work on to here by mistake with the next episode ending 'cliff hanger'? Don't get me wrong, I'm unimpressed with the situation...

    To echo others, I am sorry to hear about your ill health and hope that you are as comfortable as possible. I would say this. Getting behind our railways does not mean do not scrutinise or criticise. In such a critical situation where the...

    Then you have the problem with the 'other side of the coin'....if no one speaks out, then those in charge may well point to the lack of objections as tacit acceptance of their actions and policies. A very hard choice to make....

    You may well be right but if you are it is a terrible indictment of certain people.

    Yes, the arrival and departure was noticed, however apart from saying how easily he got into the WSR restricted facebook group and how much more information was provided there and how it "Isn't all about NP", I didn't see a great deal of...
