  1. BrightonBaltic liked jma1009's post in the thread S&D Railway Trust and Washford Eviction Notice.

    Funny how the only current WSR PLC board member who was on the board when moving Dunster PW to Washford was previously raised in 2011, and not renewing the 1991 lease for Washford, is Mark Smith... perhaps I am reading too much into this? Funny...

    But SWR will be happy to sell tickets to Okehampton with a change to a GWR train at Exeter.

    ...but probably with less grass and more mud. Oh, and a WSR point at the far end of the platform leading nowhere....

  5. BrightonBaltic liked nanstallon's post in the thread S&D Railway Trust and Washford Eviction Notice.

    While I hope that the WSR will ride the COVID 19 storm, and in normal circumstances would donate and/or buy more shares, I hesitate to do so. This is because my money could end up being spent on litigation against the S&DRT. No way would I want...

  6. BrightonBaltic liked Snifter's post in the thread S&D Railway Trust and Washford Eviction Notice.

    Your recollection is perfect, see page 2 of the link below. "It was felt that the role of General Manager is to run the daily operation and should be reporting back to the Board, not participating in the development of the PLC strategy." I hope...

  7. BrightonBaltic liked 60044's post in the thread S&D Railway Trust and Washford Eviction Notice.

    Didn't the departure of the last GM from the WSR begin with him leaving the Plc Board on the grounds that it wasn't appropriate for the GM to be a Plc Board member, followed by his dismissal as GM some time later, or am I misremembering?

  8. BrightonBaltic liked Paulthehitch's post in the thread S&D Railway Trust and Washford Eviction Notice.

    There are those who feel Cupressus Leylandii to be an eyesore as well but that is really getting into thread drift territory. Perhaps this is the time to suggest that the present lockdown situation might be a spur to dispose of railway linear...

  9. BrightonBaltic liked RailWest's post in the thread S&D Railway Trust and Washford Eviction Notice.

    It would not be unfair to say that a PW yard, by its nature, can be an untidy, scruffy space. It is not surprising that the good folk at Dunster station would like it removed so that their environment can be improved. But why on earth does the...

  10. BrightonBaltic liked Roger Thompson's post in the thread S&D Railway Trust and Washford Eviction Notice.

    You are so right. To my mind the latest news on funds raised for the emergency appeal tells it's own story.http://www.wsr.org.uk/news.htm#2031 In round numbers, taking everything in, £101k, of which £32k is really already WSR money, strongarmed...

  11. jonathonag replied to the thread Tornado Railtour Programme 2021.

    I think we perhaps have to be realistic regarding the effort it takes for these tours to be rescheduled. Not only does the engine have to be available, so does Support Crew, rolling stock, locomotive crews and facility at Network Rail to...

  12. BrightonBaltic liked gwilialan's post in the thread S&D Railway Trust and Washford Eviction Notice.

    The notice was served back in February - before this pandemic hit us - so I'd suggest the question should be "How was this action supposed to help the Plc at all?" No course of action is going to be financially beneficial to the Plc. Either...
