two things for today
Buried in the message board and comments sections are views that Chilcompton station site should be secured ASAP for future S&D use.
This is really something that we should be getting our teeth into. I would perhaps suggest that this is the first solid thing the New S&D should do once it is launched - to raise the funds for this purchase.
Part of the site is currently occupied by Massey Wilcox, a transport company. Before you utter a big sigh, they do boast on their lorries that they are 'rail connected'. This shows they are forward thinking as rail is the future for all freight. I'm sure they would be amenable to also becoming rail-connected at Chilcompton!
Another idea that came to me today is that ALL members of the New S&D should have the right to post DIRECTLY to this blog. This would be openness and democracy in action! What do you think?
