    For those who don’t know, Grosmont MPD has its own Facebook page for the latest news on the MPD fleet of steam locos and diesels. The aim is to educate its users in what it takes to maintain, run and overhaul. A site well worth looking at...

    Beware, though - even an innocuous comment that the railway management probably wouldn't countenance another loco coming to the line is seemingly enough to get one banned!

    Yeah, that's the problem of this group - they don't want to hear inconvenient truth. Just right like Facebook - it's easier to delete than to comprehend. Overall, the recent Facebook censoring policy is ridiculous. Even harmless jokes will be deleted if the advertisers are not pleased. Moreover, Facebook stepped over user's privacy to show more precise advertisments. I think even TikTok will surpass them sooner or later. TikTok already has a vast monetizing sector, including third-party services, such as https://famoid.com/buy-tiktok-followers/. I don't know how long Facebook will shine with such an approach.
