  • 20th November 2012 - Update to the NG15 website following the November working party.

  • 8th November 2012 - Announcement of annual Christmas gathering for volunteers at Dinas

  • 25th October 2012 - The K1 group have unfortunately had to cancel the November working party. The next three working parties are now in 2013 and details are on the K1 Working Party page.

  • 23rd October 2012 - Notification of a delay to the distribution of TSR №78. Please see the Announcements page for more details.
    Also an update to the NG15 website following the October 2012 working party weekend.
    Please note the older Changelog entries are now split off from this main page but are still available through the links at the bottom of this page.

  • 8th October 2012 - A reminder and a plea for help for the forth coming Joint Landscaping Group's working party on the 12 the 15th October. The response from members so far has been very poor so please please are there some other members who could help. Remember this is very much the 'public face' of the railway and whilst this is the end of the season all the groundwork done now will pay dividends next year.

  • 2nd October 2012 - K1 working party dates for the remainder of 2012 and into 2013 are announced with the aim of getting the Loco into steam in April 2013. Please see the Working Parties page.

  • 5th September 2012 - An update to the Joint Landscaping Group's Reports page with the full TSR report with some photos together with the next JLG working party dates. A plea for help at the AGM/Quarrypower weekend and an update to the NG15 working party reports.

  • 31st August 2012 - East Anglian Group Contacts, Programme and Activities updated.

  • 14th August 2012 - K1 July working party report added.

  • 29th July 2012 - Added Issue 77 to the TSR 61-80 English and TSR 61-80 Welsh pages.

  • 28th July 2012 -  Most members will be familiar with Steve Harris's Welsh Highland Railway maps and plans on his 'fiftyone' website. Steve has decided not to maintain this website and so rather than loosing access to the maps he has donated that section of his site to the Society for their future care. These pages have therefore been incorporated into the English language half of this site and so you'll find them linked to from the menu bar above. The structure of the site is much as before, however it all now lives within a main website window. I'd like to thank Steve on behalf of the Society for allowing the continued access to such a useful facility.
    If our Welsh speaking members feel that this is a useful resource that should  also live in the Welsh language half please let us know and we'll schedule in its translation.
