Re: Bute / Coniston Back to Back

Any updates on second meeting or next steps? Unfortunately, despite the best efforts of Jordan and Peter, the first meeting achieved nothing and our date to arrange a second meeting came and went without so much as the courtesy of a reply so, with regret, it's in the hands of our lawyers now. I rea...

Re: Off the Rails - Train Stuff

Hi Folks, hope you're all doing well and are safe from the dreaded Spon Plague. Here's a few recent photos that may be of interest to someone out there. CM3305+CM3304 with 7762V loaded wheat train from Dimboola, passing through Langi Logan at dusk on 20/9/20. Keen observers will note the positive re...

I'm surprised old mate Stuckleberry didn't volunteer to do it.

Re: Bute / Coniston Back to Back

If they really want to see K7 in their museum, they need to start making an effort and communicate. This stalemate will simply continue indefinitely if they don't. If the Ruskin did try to take this to court, their non-communication would in, my estimation, work against them. I always like this one...

Re: Bute / Coniston Back to Back

It doesn't take much to organise a Zoom meeting. I've taken part in a few recently at short notice. You simply punt the participants a message telling them the time, and the login code. Everyone logs on, you have the discussion, make a decision which suits everyone, then contact the other party with...

Re: Bute / Coniston Back to Back

I'd love to log on one day to read on the BBP's Twitter feed that a group of Ruskin Trustees are heading up to North Shields to have a look at K7 and talk to the team. If that would happen, it would make a lot of old fart‘s eyes wet... I don't know about people tearing up and getting a lump in thei...

Re: Coniston Bye laws/Ruskin

but will he ride off into the sunset or regenerate into another identity like an idiotic Doctor Who? If he rides off into the sunset someone might be able to verify this one way or the other. Just been sent this. Does it really say 'Starship Bluebird' at the bottom of that plate or has some joker b...

Re: Coniston Bye laws/Ruskin

She also seems quite happy allowing her current partner to run amok on the internet denigrating the BBP at every opportunity, and also speaking as though he's a trustee of the Ruskin Museum. Then again, perhaps she doesn't know what he's up to. It's not a good look at all for Gina; The Campbell Fam...
