    The GCR Rolling Stock Trust uses social media now!
    https://www.facebook.com/GCRRST/

    This trust tries to restore the few remaining GCR carriages. Therefore they do an important job in order to preserve the GCR heritage for the coming generations.

    Viewable without having to register with Fbk.
    Why can't more sites do that?

    Indeed, I've never understood the closed Facebook page mentality, especially while appealing for funds or help at the same time. If you want help or funds then you need to be as opening, welcoming and giving with information as possible in order to capture people's imagination!

    Potentially of interest, I notice today on the GCR-RST fb page is an appeal for volunteers, donations and the like to restore the other carriages in the collection. Which is welcome- like I guess many others I'm interested in contributing, but I'd not come across (until today at least) an address to send donations to.

    Noted on their fb page today is a 'come and see' event at Ruddington on September 17th, where restored 6-wheeler #946, the Barnums and suburban carriage (being converted to a stores van) #799 will be on display.
