What you left out is the fact that one director persistently supported the businessman even when it was apparent that he was an asset stripper out to get as much cash as possible out of the place, while the other directors took legal action in an attempt to terminate the contract. You will find posts about this at the very beginning of this thread in 2014. It's convenient for the new group to tar us all with the same brush. To go into even more detail, the directors tried to organise track repairs per the ORR requirements in June 2014, but it was the same one director who organised the Society Committee to vote in favour of ripping up the track. The same committee was then prompted by the same director to pass a vote of censure on me for the crime of consulting a solicitor and I was summarily dismissed from all my posts at the Railway. The legal action to evict the businessman was cancelled by the sole director. Its convenient to omit all these details but rather foolish to turn down all offers of help from past directors who have years of experience of solving railway problems.
