Well, I had to break it sometime. As many of you may well know the Snailbeach District Railways, is one of my favorite Railways. we are planning to Restore this line as a Heretage railway, Today my Dad had a meeting with Tarmac, Who happen to own half of the old trackbed. The meeting went well and things are looking hopeful, and a definite answer will come to us in a week or two. November the 1st signals the Opening of our website and the start of our campaign, We hope To get Trains Running by August '07 to co-inside with the 130th Anniversary of the line opening. The thought of me helping to clear land for the trackbed just fills me with exitement.
And I cant half wait to Drive my 'Dennis' (

Dear Jeorge,

Best wishes for the restoration. I've driven around that part of the world on a few occasions; it should be impressive once done.

BTW, most people post items on actual railways under the 'Prototype Info' forum heading - there's quite a bit there on Heritage railways already. And have you got the site listed on www.heritagerailways.com yet? This is a national website for railway preservers/restorers.
Regards,
John Webb
