Re: Croydon and South London Branch On Line Meeting

Our on line meeting last night went very successfully, albeit with a few teething problems - it was much enjoyed by those who participated. Thanks go to David, Jeremy, John and Ken for their contributions. To follow on, we have decided to hold another on Monday June 8th, at our usual time of 1930. D...

Re: Pre-nationalisation station use

Another query is over Turnham Green and Ravenscourt Park (LSWR services withdrawn 1916), and Stamford Brook (never served by LSWR trains) - all on an originally LSWR line: when did management (and station operation) transfer from LSWR (or SR) to Underground (MDR/LPTB)? My understanding is that owner...

Re: Pre-nationalisation station use

A few further thoughts: Wandsworth Road and Clapham Road (on the LCDR/SECR section of the South London Line) remained served by LBSCR services after withdrawal of SECR services in c1916. Were Coulsdon South (present name) and Merstham, on the SE/SEC section of the Brighton mainline always served by ...

Re: Pre-nationalisation station use

And a further thought - a number of stations were jointly owned (Aylesbury, Carlisle and Bristol TM come to mind), and operated by a joint committee of the owners, which did not however run any train services (done by the owning and sometimes other companies)

Re: Pre-nationalisation station use

Pre grouping two examples I can think of - the Great Eastern's Shepreth branch, used only by GN services to Cambridge; and Ryde Pier Head and Esplanade - owned jointly by the LSW and LBSC, but only used by IoW and IoWC. In the late pre-nationalisation period, when did LNER services into Fenchurch St...

Re: RO Archive

Digital versions of the RO were produced and made available to the RCTS Yahoo groups (Library and Officers') from September 2008, until they were made available on the website (from c2013) - this was an initiative started by Terry Silcock, and AIUI they came out of the RO production cycle at some st...

Re: e-mail clent or e-mail service

There are alternatives to Thunderbird, but I wouldn't suggest you go there unless you really don't like Thunderbird - I doubt they offer any great advantages. What I would suggest is that, to have all your e-mail in one place, you add your other e-mail accounts to Thunderbird (it can handle multiple...

Re: e-mail clent or e-mail service

Sorry, but every time I think I am getting to grips with emails I seem to go backwards and become more confused. Going back a step. Accessing WLM is just like it was in the beginning. All emails can be accessed and new ones created but only sent when on line. Thus, the freeserve history will be acc...
