    Save the date! We are just finalising the arrangements and full details are to follow, but save the date if you’re interested in an evening of Bahamas with the wagons. Please don’t call or email us as booking is not yet open, but we’ll let you...

    Interesting. One would assume that, if the NHR board are publicly asking these questions, somehow they have got the impression that those two plans may be on the EMRT agenda? How accurate that impressions is, and where those notions have come...

  3. ruddingtonrsh56 liked richards's post in the thread Great Central Railway (Nottingham).

    The writing styles of the two parties are noticeably different. One is factual and formal, the other is more aggressive and critical. There are times when details of discussions or conflicts are best left for the discussions themselves rather...

    I’ve been a member of both organisations for over 30 years (pretty much from the outset as far as the northern end is concerned) although in recent years my voluntary effort has been concentrated south of the ‘gap’. The GCRN (now NHR) has always...

    Plus I guess it's probably preferable for these discussions to be taking place now, as opposed to once the gap has been bridged and everybody is expecting a passenger carrying train to leave Ruddington for Leicester North in the following weeks....

  8. ruddingtonrsh56 liked Jamessquared's post in the thread Swanage Railway General Discussion.

    So which do you think brings more economic benefit to the residents and business of Swanage? A "six mile steam powered entertainment" as you put it, turning over several million pounds per year and with a known multiplier effect of support for...

    Looking very smart, the lining does make it look smarter than the unlined blue she was in previously (IMHO). Congratulations and well done to the team on a restoration which, aesthetically as least, has been very well done! I'm sure mechanically...

    Well I wasn't expecting to wake up to this in my inbox! Obviously without seeing the EMRT document and being able to see word for word what was said, there will be an element of speculation in everybody's response to this. Volunteers had...
