Welcome to the 'New Somerset and Dorset Railway'
Saturday, August 04, 2012
The New S&D have had loads of new members join in the last few weeks, possibly as a result of the recent Steam Railway magazine article.
To those of you who have sent in cheques or paid by Paypal please accept my apologies for the delay in getting your membership cards etc to you. I will do everything I can to get them out in this coming week!
There's certainly a feeling in the air that huge changes are coming to our railways, all of them good! With new lines opening up both in the heritage and network sectors this really is beginning to feel like the great rail revival we've been forecasting for years.
So if you want to see railways and tramways spring up everywhere in response to Peak Oil and Climate Change please join (or start!) a local society or group, get involved at the grass roots level and help to make this happen. You'll learn new practical skills, make loads of new friends and inevitably form the sort of network of contacts that will stand you in good stead in the future.
These are amazing times for the railway community. You owe it to yourselves to get involved!
