    Undone collar buttons and no ties are so not yesterday's look.

    The ORR gave a bit of detail about what they were concerned about, including "maintenance of track and structures". So it wasn't just paperwork...

    Very good. Now can you make it look like it was taken on film - Kodachrome 64, for example?

    Ok, Kodachrome 25. And don't call me Shirley.

    West Somerset Railway reopens fully on Good Friday - 19 April 2019.

    As has been widely reported, the WSR has had a bit of a tough winter, but its people have dug in and it fully reopens this Friday to Minehead.

    (Until then, trains are running Bishops Lydeard to Watchet.)

    Please help get the message ‘out there’ in any way you can.

    And why not stop by for a ride? The weather forecast is good, particularly for Easter Friday and Saturday, 19/20.

    The poster is held by WSR Commercial Officer Sam White, who designed it.

    Yes good news indeed. 9351 has shown that if you engage with givers and show progress then they will get behind a project.

    Printing a few thousand begging leaflets and expect money to appear by magic is not the way today. (The L & B built a £600K loco through engagement.)

    Lets hope the grant from the Great and Ancient is the shot in the arm for 4561 and folks get behind it thus maintaining momentum.

    Gosh!

    So easy to knock, knock, knock.

    Well try the below, which has gone to 6,000 plus Hinkley workers and their families in their house newspaper in the last day or so.

    I had a small role in making the connections but the hard work in achieving this was done by the unfortunately departed WSR Commercial Mark Hill and finished off by Sam White.

    The first tickets have already been sold.

    The Website suggests that until Sunday almost all trains are reserved for Paw Patrol attendees, and in effect you cant do a round trip from the BL

    I think it depends on how you read it!
    Paw Patrol is Friday & Saturday & I can't imagine the entire train will be reserved.
    Normal service resumes on Sunday & Monday on the Blue & Red tt's.

    No discount for the 11-17yr-olds? Seems a bit odd.
