Re: Carriage Conundrums Updates

As a general comment, if people want to know about changes to specific web pages I recommend a free service like http://www.watchthatpage.com/ . Once you've added the pages (such as http://www.rcts.org.uk/features/carriages/ ) in which you have an interest you get daily emails telling you which page...

Re: RAILWAY OBSERVER CHANNEL

I am of the view that 'OVER THE POINTS' does not fit well in the journal of a hobby society. Such editorials belonging to commercially produced journals. I suspect I am not the only one of that opinion. One man's meat is another man's poison. I personally like the 'over the points' section. I suppo...

Re: RAILWAY OBSERVER CHANNEL

Regarding photos, I sometimes submit some but would be more inclined to do so more often if: 1. more made it through to print; 2. more different subjects appeared in print; 3. more imaginative images appeared in print. I realise that item 1 is self-fulfilling. For item 2, we all, I am sure, know wha...

Re: A DISCUSSION POINT

Yes. The immediate obvious difference would have been a programme of bridge and tunnel enlargements in the non-broad gauge areas lasting many, many years. As it's easier to make a broad gauge line narrower than a narrow one broader then I would expect that big companies such as the North Eastern wou...

Re: Annual General Meeting insert

I'm not party to any particular financial reasons for doing one thing or another. However, I think an annual report and accounts available to all members is a legal requirement (happy to be corrected if I am wrong).

It looks like it's still there to me. Goto http://www.rcts.org.uk/about/members/pagesuite and then click on "Archive". Hope this helps!

Re: RCTS on facebook

Does the top level page https://www.facebook.com/RCTSUK help?

(I don't 'do' Facebook so I don't know what we're looking for!)

Re: RCTS on facebook

A quick 'Google' search reveals this https://www.facebook.com/RCTSUK/info?tab=page_info which has a photos link, inside which is too much stuff for me to list here. I can't see anything about 'likes' so presume it must be a different page to the one you found.

Re: Major Rail Development Plan for Wales Unveiled

This is the Wales LTPP (long term planning process) document. As exciting as some of the items may be, be aware that it (the actual document) really only gives possibilities of 'things to consider'. The Sussex, Wessex and Western LTPPs 'just happened' without a media launch which might tell you some...

Re: Generational Query

For me it's (1) because I wasn't born until after 1968!

If we take sectorisation as meaning mid-80s then I probably fall into (2) as well, though the roots were a little before when my Gran and Grandad bought me a train set when age 7-ish.
