    The new layout looks great. One small point regards the social media link buttons ..... IMO, functionality is best served by keeping 'Facebook' and 'Twitter' links highly visible at the top of the page, rather than having to scroll down to access them. Just a thought ....

    Having taken up membership I note that the receipt splits the fee into fee (sales) and VAT at 20%. Does this mean that the VAT is lost to the Society ?

    Good question Fred. Mark Walker, Chairman, will look into it. But his initial reply is: "We still get all the money. He doesn't have to pay vat on his membership, it's more an error on the receipt than anything else"

    VAT on membership? Had this argument with HMC&E, as it was then, years ago regarding VAT on subscriptions. They couldn’t even agree amongst themselves but decided finally that it wasn’t applicable in our case.

    I also note that no Gift Aid option is available; that would help increase income once arranged. If arranged can back-dated subscription income be entitled and, if so, how far back can the option be applied.

    Now that we have at least an estimate of the cost of acquiring and restoring the bogies, and a specific appeal for the cash, I hope this project will gain fresh momentum.

    I regret but accept the decision, but just apropos one of those reasons ̶

    I believe the original twins were intended, and reckoned in practice, to be roughly equivalent to a Stanier pacific when working together, and individually to Jubilees. A certain Jubilee has hauled several railtours successfully this year over some demanding routes. So the limited power of the recreated 10000 alone would not prevent it from working some main line trains. However that factor in combination with all the others is conclusive.

    If it was to go mainline it would be ironic if it had to have a diesel on the back to assist...
