"Community Rail in the City" ... the day when all of us country bumpkins go to a bigger station with lots and lots and lots and lots and lots and lots and lots of people rushing around, dream of our stations being that busy, and encourage people to visit their own / all / any community rail lines.

That does look a bit bigger than Melksham. Is it Trowbridge?  Cheesy

Should the purchaser of these six like to add the final 2 to complete his / her set, they are welcome to come and visit me in Melksham.  Upon proof of travel by train to Melksham (i.e. showing me their ticket), I will give them the final two free of charge.
