From my mailbox:

Quote
Dear Colleagues,
 
We are delighted to announce that the Community Rail Awards 2018 are now open!
 
Please see the link below to access the entry booklet, which contains all the information needed to enter the awards, but please do not hesitate to speak to us if you have any queries or need any advice on entering.
 
Also within the booklet is information on the gala dinner and on the additional events being planned by ScotRail. Yes, we are taking the awards to Scotland (Glasgow) for the very first time! ScotRail have created a fabulous programme of events to complement the awards and every gala dinner attendee will receive a complimentary ScotRail smartcard ticket, providing the unique opportunity to travel free around Scotland’s network from Thursday to Sunday and visit some of the wide variety of community rail activities.
 
There are a number of other events going on in the city at the same time so we advise attendees to book accommodation early, especially if you want to extend your stay to take advantage of the ScotRail events and travel - the booklet contains a link to accommodation via Visit Scotland.

We wish everybody the very best of luck!
 
Kind regards

* http://www.twcrp.org.uk/2018-acorp-pj.pdf
* http://gwr.passenger.chat/2018-acorp-cs.pdf

Noting that the submissions were made via a many-box form, with individual pictures and attachments separate from the text body, so  the above .pdfs are my own jigsaw construction of (I think) most of the pieces I used

Short listed entries will be notified in the next couple of days.

Short listed entries will be notified in the next couple of days.

All three entries have been shortlisted.   Congratulations to the admin and moderators team here and all the members who came along and contributed to the Didcot meeting and subsequent franchise input.   And congratulations to Paul Johnson of TransWilts for his individual nomination, and for the TransWilts App which he spearheads.

Full short list at https://communityrail.org.uk/awards_18_shortlist/ ... and we have some stiff and excellent competition as you would expect.

On the Coffee Shop entry, we have competition from Helmsdale in the North to Seaford in the South ... across all categories I keep seeing Severnside and Devonand Cornwall CRPs crop up - congratulations to them - and I notice more local entries for the Avocet line and for Dawlish - congratulations there too.  Please post any other GW shortlists you spot in the list - it's late in the day and I'm going cross-eyed!
