  1. I would echo much of what Keith Lawrie says. As we are Railway Ramblers, we should be shouting from the rooftops about anything that appears to prevent Railways being Rambled. The appalling action by the Historic Railways Estate, which I was not previously aware of, is a key issue to campaign against, particularly as the Secretary of State for Transport, with the support of the Prime Minister, has advocated Active Travel for recreation and health.
    Whilst I am not in a position to put myself forward, I do hope that the club can find a suitable volunteer to take on the role of Campaigner for this, and future challenges.

  2. The Club should support campaigns that aim to improve or safeguard railway paths; in particular any structures (bridges and tunnels) which are necessary to enable the old railway routes to be accessed and walked.
    Part of the Club’s ethos is to promote and support setting up and maintaining of new railway paths so any other parties trying to do this should be supported.

  3. It would be good to make our voices heard. Whilst I cannot put myself forward for the position I would be willing to support whoever is elected in getting things moving. The articles about HRE were very thought provoking and it is time this quango and the individuals involved were investigated and if necessary held to account for their so called “work”. The Government appear to be showing some leaning towards getting some former lines and stations re-opened. I have my doubts as to how sincere that is and given the record of past governments both Tory and Labour I’m not expecting much if anything to come to fruition. One thing is certain more public money will be gobbled up by studies/cost analysis!
