Newsletter

We publish "Updates" about 3 times each year, more often if something special occurs.
"Updates" are distributed by post or e-mail according to subscribers' preferences.

We have a mailing list of over 3,000 addresses.

If you are on our e-mail list, we can also send you urgent notices - for example if a planning application appears to threaten the trackbed and objections are needed.

UPDATE No. 63 will be distributed via e-mail and post in late September 2017.
Update No. 64 is scheduled for January 2018.
 
Updates are published on this website a few weeks after all subscribers have received them.
