Welcome to the 'New Somerset and Dorset Railway'
Friday, April 24, 2009
The New Somerset and Dorset Railway has just acquired its first junior member. Matthew Sheasby of Bromley suggested we offer junior membership and he's the first person to take it up. I'm sure he'll be the first of many! He also very kindly gave us a donation, which is really appreciated.
It's absolutely essential that we offer loads of incentives for young people to get involved. They will almost certainly be lucky enough to see the line restored in their lifetimes, so they have a lot to work towards. Their world will be very different from ours. Cars and aeroplanes will be a memory, and rail transport will be everywhere.
