    West Somerset Railway - Then and Now #122

    Dunster 1971 / 2017

    From Dunster West Crossing, looking east through the station. The 'then' view was taken only a week or two after closure.

    4160 AGM

    The following has been dropping through letter boxes today.

    I have been asked to attend as proxy for one shareholder already. If I can perform that service for anyone else, they are welcome to PM me.

    (I have redacted some information as the Company Office is also the Company Secretary's personal address.)

    I see that I get a special mention in the notice. Last year they appear to have gone missing between being put through the letterbox and landing on the doormat.:rolleyes::confused::eek:

    This year there will be photographs...

    Does the rule that proof of posting by Royal Mail is proof of delivery still apply?

    There is no requirement, and this is not unusual for a small private limited company. The articles of association can be found on the Companies House website.

    However, it is open for shareholders to propose resolutions to add/ remove directors.

    There is little chance of that happening when you look at who owns significant shareholding’s and, AFAIK, a 75% majority would be needed to pass such resolutions.

    West Somerset Railway - Then and Now #123

    Dunster 1963 / 2017

    Less than eight years to closure but steam is still in charge and there are no obvious signs of neglect. The shot was taken in August. I was just over 3 months away...

    In 2017, well...

    This is the last shot of Dunster, somewhere different tomorrow.
