The West Somerset Railway Plc has issued a statement about current issues – in particular concerning the Plc’s engagement with the West Somerset Railway Association.

For the full text of the statement please click here.

The Plc have also issued a copy of a letter sent to the WSRA which adds further insight into current issues.

We believe WSRA members will need to carefully read both of these documents and consider the impact of the stated changes on the WSRA’s current plans.

The view from the WSRA+ team – all long term WSRA members – is that the Trustees will take this on the chin and use this new baseline to urgently form new policies to deal with the impact.

WSRA+ also believes the Review of the WSRA will need to take serious note of this new situation and will hopefully propose a shape for WSRA that can work in a good way for all of the Railway.
