It's come to my attention that there are well over 200 broken links in various of (mostly my) posts made between 2010 and October 2018.   I will look to fixing them (at least linking from the forum to a holding page or to this thread) over the next few hours, rather that giving "no such server" responses which they're doing this morning. No further reports please - I know of the problem and am seeing what I can do!

From the idea of the foundation of the TransWilts Community Rail Partnership around 10 years ago, through its moving from a group that was just called a CRP (Community Rail Partnership) into an actual CRP, through the joining of ACoRP (Association of Community Rail Partnerships) and the application for TransWilts to become a designated service, and also during the structuring of the CRP as a Community Interest Company, I looked after a number of appropriate working domains.  With my departure from TransWilts in the second half of last year, I agreed to release domains I held; totally logical and helping the new team funnel all information through their single current web site at . The old domain names are now expiring, and thus the broken links, even to pages which remained useful references.

Note that I may well be able to 'doctor' links on the forum to give better than "no such server" ... but if members have other links, or there are links on other pages that aren't mine to those domains, there's nothing I can practically do.  Technically, I could re-register the domains, but that would be going against my agreement and simply repeat / delay any sorting out, with potential ill feelings.

OK - I have most of those links now pointing to what is essentially archived content, with some taking you to the main TransWilts web site.  Sorry about the short unplanned main server outage during the process.

You can find out more about how this forum works [here] - that will link you to a copy of the forum agreement that you can read before you join, and tell you very much more about how we operate. We are an independent forum, provided and run by customers of Great Western Railway, for customers of Great Western Railway and we welcome railway professionals as members too, in either a personal or official capacity. Views expressed in posts are not necessarily the views of the operators of the forum.

As well as posting messages onto existing threads, and starting new subjects, members can communicate with each other through personal messages if they wish. And once members have made a certain number of posts, they will automatically be admitted to the "frequent posters club", where subjects not-for-public-domain are discussed; anything from the occasional rant to meetups we may be having ...
