right lines - makeover and take off!
This is something we've held back on because we felt that we needed some sort of presence before blitzing the media and pulling in far more members locally. The hope is that every forward-thinking resident along the route gets actively involved in getting their railway back. It may be a struggle at first because much of the media is backwards-looking, leftward-leaning, silver spacesuited and hardly aware of climate change, let alone Peak Oil, but we'll soon change that!
As for Right Lines, this has really not happened as much as it should, and ideally will become at least a twice a year quality publication with fixed publishing dates (June and December?), covering the restoration, the original route, heritage aspects, economics, the local area and giving a focus for all the behind the scenes work as well as the restoration work. It will also add value to membership for members outside the area, and our overseas members, being kept up to date with all the big events and action now happening around the S&D.
Things are happening very quickly and it may be that Right Lines may well become a thrice yearly or even quarterly publication in time.
