Thanks for all your work with that restructuring of the Coffee Shop forum, grahame.  Lips sealed

May I thank you for your prompt and appropriate action in those circumstances, grahame.

We had coffee together and I brought one back 4 DR,

I do empathize: I remember retrieving his empty coffee cups from under DR's wheelchair for him at the GWR CRP meeting in Barnstaple last year.  Wink

Fair point.  Grin

I have now corrected grahame's typo in his original heading for this topic.  Wink

Yes, Cricket St Thomas, near Chard, Somerset.
Video of the railway in action:

Yes, I won't quote that particular clip again, purely in the interests of brevity here, but I can say that I enjoyed an absolutely brilliant family day out at Cricket St Thomas, some fifteen or more years ago. We all rode on that railway, when there was still wildlife running around on each side of the track.  The young children loved it!  Grin

One other thing. Hidden in the woods at Cricket St Thomas, slowly being reclaimed by nature, are the remains of 'Blobbyland'.

Hopefully, those remains will become forever forgotten.  Machu Picchu is worth preserving: Blobbyland is most certainly notShocked

No worries - you can credit our collective thanks to your previous sleepless nights instead. Wink

As ever, grahame, may we offer you our very grateful thanks for your sterling efforts - usually behind the scenes - in maintaining the Coffee Shop forum.  Wink Cheesy

Not sure what happened to the outgoing emails - a lot got through but it looks like a lot didn't, and as it's "no action required" we're not re-sending.   A couple of folks have emailed to ask for their accounts to be removes, and others have confirmed receipt, so there's quite a lot in both camps.

I too was wondering what happened to my email. I've just found it in my Spam folder.

Mine, too, turned up in my spam folder ...  Roll Eyes

Hmm.  Roll Eyes

Reading through the whole of that particular Daily Mail article (and I did, purely in the interests of our membership Wink ), it seems there is rather more to this story than it appears from their headlines.

I really hope that the wider issues can be resolved, and that the Poole Park Railway can then reopen as soon as possible.  Lips sealed

Fair enough.  I am a great fan of Taunton, as you will all know by now.  Roll Eyes

Yes, that's all very well - but what about the trackside trespasser in the foreground?  Why don't they have fencing to keep the types of him out ??  Shocked Roll Eyes Grin

Well, Finn wouldn't have had to run very fast.  Lips sealed

I thought I saw some sort of rebuttal of the scary BBC story.  Is there another thread current about this?

In "Bristol Commuters" ... fit both "Bristol" and "Campaign" boards.   We should merge at some point.

Yeah just found another thread on this ...

Thanks for your links, and those topics have indeed now been moved and merged as suggested.  Wink
