Re: 2017 AGM Coventry - Website Features

The member who had hoped to be present at the AGM with a laptop will probably not now be able to attend. However, the chair of the meeting has asked the Society Secretary to try and source a lap top so as to display Society website features. Those planning to attend the AGM will no doubt have looked...

Re: Locked Topics

It should be remembered that I am not the only RCTS member affected by the e-mail changes and in need of help to unravel all the implications. I note that two officers are listed in the January 2017 RCTS Officers Directory (printed version) as having fsnet and fsmail e-mail accounts which are on the...

Re: ID Fowler 3F at Bletchley cicra 1963/64

Have you been in touch with the What Really Happened to Steam Project http://www.whatreallyhappenedtosteam.co.uk/ giving as much detail as you can. As is well known they are trying to put right the wrongs of the past with regard to locomotive disposal information. For steam locomotives this includes...

Re: Locked Topics

As I have mentioned in various posts the decision by BT/EE/Orange/Wannadoo/fs/freeserve or whoever they really are to extinguish my longstanding email was most unwelcome. It has however made me have along hard look, which is very much on going, with regard to my exposure on the internet. Questions a...

Re: 2017 AGM Coventry - Lap Top Computer

Last Year an addition to my 'little table in the corner' was a lap top computer displaying the Society website which allowed those not conversant with it to see what was on offer as well as explaining the areas which I was developing. If I am in attendance I would hope to do the same again. As many ...

Re: Dalescroft Railfans

I am interested in Doncaster Works and specifically class 31s as I am trying to build up repair histories. The main other "Works" that I am interested in is Stratford DRS, which did a lot of class 31 work, particularly collision damage repairs. However Stratford reports only occasionally distinguis...

Re: RO Archive

I too understood that digitalising earlier editions of the RO in a searchable format was an on going project building on the work started a number of years ago by Terry. Like 21275 I am very keen to be able to search diesel era ROs for the gems of information hidden in their pages. Currently I have ...

Re: ECML - The nineties are back!

Apologies for late updating of the website this week due to being elsewhere most of the time. Computers, Internet, E-mail etc are left behind when I leave the house. The majority of information I receive is with regard to what is planned for a particular day. Thus, inclusion of TBC which is only rem...

Locked Topics

Towards the end of last week two Topics to which I have contributed were locked, seemingly without explanation. One in particular was being particularly informative for those like me who currently have a number of e-mail and computing difficulties. I emailed the Acting Webmaster earlier in the week ...
