  1. S.A.C. Martin liked Matt37401's post in the thread Replica builds for heritage lines..

    Paul that post is one of the biggest pile of steaming BS I have had the misfortune to read, Paul have you ever paid a visit to Highley? A 4 or 5 coach platform that regularly has to deal with 8 or 9 sets of bogies worth of passengers . I'm sure...

  2. S.A.C. Martin liked ruddingtonrsh56's post in the thread Replica builds for heritage lines..

    This seems to have developed into a debate about the best way to carry more passengers - longer trains, more trains, more operating days or a combination of the above. I would have thought it would be obvious that railway management would take...

    So can we put this one to bed then Paul? It's obvious that in the heritage railway world this isn't applicable from all the examples posted above, and one might venture that maybe you need to visit some heritage railways other than the IoWSR....

    I'd give up if I were you - you know you're right, I know you're right, everyone knows you're right. I expect even PH knows, but he's never going to admit it. Sent from my SM-J330FN using Tapatalk

  5. The Dainton Banker liked Andy Norman's post in the thread West Somerset Railway Operations.

    Please don’t be nervous, you make some fair points which as you focus on them are worth me giving an opinion on. My view was that people telling me ‘you are to stop making comments on social media’ and then putting that into Trustee guidelines in...

  6. The Dainton Banker liked alastair's post in the thread West Somerset Railway Operations.

    Sorry, but what are you on about? What "fake news" and which "cohorts presenting a united front"? You say you are "fortunately" no longer a WSRA member and you seem quite unhappy about things. Can you elaborate?

    Yes I take the point, perhaps not the best example to use, so its an awfully big pub with lot of friends in it, with also a lot of other people stood at the bar who are overhearing what you are saying, its a very, very large pub where people come...

  8. The Dainton Banker liked Robin White's post in the thread West Somerset Railway Operations.

    There is no way we would have built the base of support to X the X6 without social media. It is, perhaps, no coincidence that totalitarian regimes hate such communication - China for instance. In the former East Germany, which I knew well, the...

  9. The Dainton Banker liked aldfort's post in the thread West Somerset Railway Operations.

    But if you read what was written it was not a new group. Robin simply stepped in to try to re-kindle the existing group. If you would like to contact me I'll be happy to find the support for you to re-start this group if that is what you would...

    Risking life and limb by approaching the edge of the swamp here...but I travelled over the S & C regularly in the early '70s, on the late lamented "Thames-Clyde Express", and at both Appleby and Settle (the only intermediate stations between...

  11. The Dainton Banker liked Robin White's post in the thread West Somerset Railway Operations.

    I think I can answer with some authority. The Taunton Area Group had been gradually running down for some years. With the blessing of the replacement Trustees I took this over, as much as anything to deny the removed Trustees the legitimacy...

  12. The Dainton Banker liked Paul Whitehouse's post in the thread West Somerset Railway Operations.

    You don't have to if you are already a volunteer, although we hope you would join. We are talking about the future and how we might enrol people as members in the first place and then move them into volunteering in due course. As you have read...

  13. The Dainton Banker liked Paul Whitehouse's post in the thread West Somerset Railway Operations.

    You misunderstand the context. There had been regular very poorly attended meetings until immediately after the AGM when Robin laid on some interesting speakers and there was a burst of enthusiasm, but when only 12 showed for a talk by the Head...

    I suspect I'm on Paul's ignore list - am I bovvered? - but what does the NYMR do, lengthen Goathland platforms or stick to four coach trains?
