Re: RCTS on facebook

Weird. Using the same link as before, the facebook page now looks like the format I am used to. Much better for browsing.

Re: RCTS on facebook

Yes that link is ok. I don't use facebook much but I am used to having Photos as a heading to go to when I do use it. I'll fiddle a bit more.

Re: RCTS on facebook

Further probing came up with
https://www.facebook.com/RCTSUK/likes
I think it would be useful to have the link on the RCTS website, or am I missing something?

Re: RCTS on facebook

Phil that link seems a bit empty? If one types in Railway Correspondence and Travel Society in full one gets the 28 likes. Are there 2 sites?

Re: RO 2014 Index

I have made my points about the opportunities for the RCTS website to include minutes/decisions etc. on subjects which have an immediate or future impact on members and will leave it at that. If I have to live without the Index as previously published by the RCTS, so be it. What I will not do is mak...

Re: RO 2014 Index

Irrespective of the labelling on the Branch newsletter ?tin?, the question was whether there was any valid reason why this and other minutes/documents having a bearing on the management of the Society should not be available on the Society website. The website has been pushed energetically over the ...

Re: RO 2014 Index

There is a lot of activity on the forum and the yahoo group relating to the way in which the discarding of the paper version of the Index was presented. There are also comments suggesting that the MC is a secretive group. In the Feb issue on p 74 mention is made of Branch Newsletter 59A which does n...

Re: Brit Streaks

I will have to accept that this is a myth. I also accept that Liverpool St./Stratford spotters would be possibly the best source of sightings over the years. However......on p136 Vol 1 of the RCTS BR Standard Steam locomotives there is an outline of C.S.Cock's design for a 3 cylinder Pacific that wa...

Re: Why are you a member (or not) of the RCTS?

I was first made aware of the RCTS about 35 years ago. I was trying to get some work done by an engineer at my workplace in a Pharmaceutical company, He was reading one of the RCTS L.B.& S.C.R. books by D.L.Bradley. I have forgotten what it was I went into have made for my project, but I have not fo...

Brit Streaks

I was a train spotter in Merseyside in the early 60s. Liverpool Lime Street after school, Edge Hill, Birkenhead Woodside , Chester and Crewe for days out. I heard rumours of ?Brit Streaks? i.e. streamlined Brittanias. Of course I dismissed this, as I did rumours of Clan Pacifics working into Lime St...
