    Fees in the case of this venue are revenue, but would expect no more on NP, deflect a informed post with a turn of words.

    Trying to score brownie points, when a post maybe shows outfits like yours a way to increase turnover, using social media is hardly helping.

    On a serious note, if you do have somebody in your association, who gets the opportunity to do a social media "cash in" course, it obviously well worth it.

    Not trying to score brownie points at all, hence the smilie but if you must take it as such then so be it. :rolleyes:

    What were you seeking to fund by the way?

    Will send you a PM, because I might have something that might help you, from a very strange funding source.

    My turn to call out some "usual suspects".
    Why is it that some of you are intent on portraying reasonable and polite discussions as some sort of feud, adding heat to the debate by implying WC is being subject to abuse and disrespect.
    Nobody is making demands of WC, simply expressing a WIBN for more news releases. As far as I see there is total acceptance that WC can and will run things as the deem fit. Any number of other businesses get mentioned and discussed across this forum, often in an opinionated manner, without challenge so why is it WC invokes some of you to such staunch yet gratuitous responses? There is no battle but it ain't yours to fight even if there was.

    Looking very handsome indeed, and the colour is an almost exact match for the moss growing on the coaling tower. :D..............;)

    Very handsome indeed: but there has been no conjecture yet as to why the front footplate step-panels in front of the valve-chests are missing..... oh dear, what have I done......:eek:

    Cheers,

    Well at least it's now more apparent where the additional work on BIL has focused.

    Go on then I'll say it, with the leaks around those cylinders I would have thought it was obvious?

    You don't need to steam a loco and then trundle it up and down the yard to sort out "gauging" - a static loco, tape measure and other measuring devices will do?
