The club set up its Facebook page (see below) in 2015, and this now is where members share their photographs and posts. The standard of the photographs is very high, which makes members’ albums well worth viewing: you may be surprised at the range of scenery and extant engineering features that the UK’s old railways have to offer. The posts cover everything from new media coverage of old railways (books, magazines, TV series, etc.) to reports of new trails, new industrial archaeology, and threats to local railway paths. In that connection, development is the usual danger, so the sooner developers learn to use rather than obliterate old railways, the better. Some new developments provide excellent traffic-free routes for their residents, but, in the age of global warming, this should be the norm.
