  1. Hampshire Unit liked pmh_74's post in the thread Edmonson tickets a lost "cause" for ever?.

    Am I? I was replying to a comment which said “young families ... care far more about being able to book their tickets online”. That is the nonsense part. I went on to say that online booking is perfectly possible alongside traditional ticketing...

  2. Hampshire Unit liked Bean-counter's post in the thread Edmonson tickets a lost "cause" for ever?.

    My apologies that I had to complete by earlier post rather rapidly for the vital reason that dinner was ready! I suspect quite a few of us are possibly continuing an argument where we know we aren't going to change minds, and some maybe just to...

    I visited the Welshpool & Llanfair railway yesterday, and got a proper Edmondson ticket. :) When I commented about this I was told it was all part of the authentic heritage experience.

    Or this pair from Blue Anchor from the 1950’s and last year...? The booking clerk is getting a bit worn down by the argument!!! [ATTACH] [ATTACH]

    To whom? It clearly does matter to many (most?) contributors to this thread. You seem to be saying 'the only things that matter are the things that matter to me'. Is that what you're saying?

    Edmonsons may be only a small part of the overall heritage experience but lots of small parts make up the whole. Dismiss one as unnecessary and how long before another small part is consigned to the dustbin, then another, then another?

    Fine, if you are content with a steam experience model, then I would agree - tickets do not matter. But otherwise, it is a part of the whole - and one that is frankly pretty inexpensive compared to the alternatives.

  10. Hampshire Unit liked Monkey Magic's post in the thread Edmonson tickets a lost "cause" for ever?.

    It's a bit like arguing with the Black Knight from Monty Python. But remember Edmondsons belong in a museum, and Ivatts belong on the IOWR but your MN, Castle, buffet cars etc have no place on a modern authentic tourist attraction heritage...

    As a minor contribution to this debate I offer snaps of my tickets from the Bluebell opening to East Grinstead and of the GWSR to Broadway. You can see which one I chose to have framed. (T’was a bit of a special number, mind.) Not providing...

    I'm curious as to how many of these people claiming no one cares about cardboard tickets have actually gone through a train of 8 carriages and clipped them all. For many kids it's a highlight, something to break up the monotony of the train...

    Black Five's last day is 2/9/18 unless something major happens before then. I shall miss sitting here on a Saturday night at 10pm listening to it storm out of Alresford station with a RAT- six heavily loaded Mk1's, a Belle or a Countryman...
