    Does anyone know the current whereabouts and status of the 3' Gauge former Eastwell Iron Ore Co Railway Avonside 0-6-0T 'Nancy'? I know it did pass though Shane's Castle (without being restored), and possibly the revived Cavan & Leitrim at Dromod.

    Michael,
    The Paypal link for donations has disappeared from the C & V website. Is there another route online ?

    I've had trouble with that link in the past. It only worked on Safari and not on Firefox or Edge.....
    In fact, it's still visible for me on those browsers, but still not linking to anywhere.

    Odd, I just tried it and there is no donate button showing. I've used it before without difficulty.

    Anybody any suggestions? I use Firefox.

    Mike


    adding to the above: I paused my Ghostery blocker and that then showed the payment button with options, however the button wouldn't open a page to enable payment.

    Still not working on anything other than Safari (via ipad) for me. Perhaps it's a Apple vs. PC problem? I can't get it to work on Firefox or Edge using a PC operating system 10.

    Hi all,

    Darragh here, id recommend using google chrome via PC or laptop to access the paypal link. This would be a software issue beyond our control!

    Thanks,
    Darragh
