shillingstone ups its game
A lot of very good things have been coming out of Shillingstone of late, and they are doing the S&D proud!
Their new magazine is a credit to a small group - I love the cover pic! This is issue number one, free to all members.
The biggest news of all is that they have managed to acquire half a mile of track, enough to allow them to lay double track through the station, and single track beyond. They are also taking delivery of three items of rolling stock, including a steam loco and buffet coach!
I rejoined Shillingstone last week. I must say that their membership secretary is extremely efficient, within a few days of sending off my cheque I had membership card, magazine and a direct debit form. Hopefully I'll upgrade to life membership soon. I'm already a life member at Midsomer Norton and will be taking out life membership of the New S&D next month.
