    Was going through the archive this arvo - what else do you do on a cold Jan day & came upon this one of 35028 on an even colder Jan day! https://www.flickr.com/photos/duty_druid/39637231692/

  2. 240P15 liked ruddingtonrsh56's post in the thread Current and Proposed New-Builds.

    That's a fair enough point, but I can say from personal experience that on the GCRN (where 567 will initially be based, although whether that will be before or after the gap is properly bridged and what exactly that looks like remains to be seen)...

    This sort of Rail Tricycle as pictured an mentioned by Avonside2 (thanks for pictures:)) are typical in Scandinavia but how about railways in Britain?

  4. 240P15 liked acorb's post in the thread Devon Belle A1SLT/ UKRT 2nd April.

    These images and videos really demonstrate how the A1 steam trust have got it right. Tornado is a loco really fit for the 2st century - a supremely powerful, go anywhere pacific with quick acceleration - that can cruise with heavy loads at over...

    Thanks a lot to Gav106 for setting up this information! :) Interesting to read. I just wonder if these amounts actually are money in the bank itself,or with a combination of pledges? I know that The LMS patriot project are quite exceptional...

    Mr Hitch wouldn't go down the road of new builds, they're too much W.I.B.N!

  7. 240P15 liked Gav106's post in the thread Current and Proposed New-Builds.

  8. 240P15 liked Felix Holt's post in the thread Paying Railway a Donation or Membership.

    Interesting that when I posted a few years ago about the difficulties of online paying for many societies, especially for overseas folk, I was criticized along the lines of 'if you care enough you'll send forms and money by post'. Now,...

  9. 240P15 liked The Dainton Banker's post in the thread Paying Railway a Donation or Membership.

    Some groups seem to "get" fund raising using the internet, some try but don't make a very good job of it, and some just don't understand how useful it can be. GWSR's Broadway station and extension shows the value of a well-written blog combined...

  10. 240P15 liked Copper-capped's post in the thread Paying Railway a Donation or Membership.

    Try living on the other side of the world and wanting to make a contribution to a preservation project. Online is my only option unless I want to jump through hoops - which I don't. I've put it into the "too hard" basket a few times. Some...
