    The latest (November 2023) issue of The Railway Magazine contains a five-page feature about the W&LLR.

    Titled 'The need for flexibility', the article has at its core an interview with Steve Clews, the railway's chairman, which focuses on current and future challenges. Topics covered include volunteers and rolling stock, as well as commercial and operational matters. A personal touch is a panel/box headlined 'Growing up on the railway' in which the author (yours truly) shares some reminiscences of being a young volunteer on the line.

    Incidentally, the W&LLR is also due to be under the spotlight in the magazine's Practice & Performance column in a forthcoming issue – expected to be sometime during the early part of 2024. Columnist John Heaton welcomed my suggestion of 'doing his stuff' on No. 822 and was impressed with what he saw during what was his inaugural visit to the railway.

    The magazine is available from all good newsagents. Alternatively, order your copy at https://classicmagazines.co.uk/issue/View/issue/RM202311/november-2023 – or subscribe and save at https://classicmagazines.co.uk/subscription/RM/source/digital22 .

    I'm assuming Dougal is on its way to Sittingbourne. It's currently at Ruislip Lido Railway on the back of a lorry, while Sherpa from Fairbourne Railway is being unloaded for the RLR gala.
