The Intermediary Group have issued the following statement which will be of interest to WSRA members.

“This statement is written following discussions we have held with the West Somerset Railway PLC and the West Somerset Railway Association (including WSRA Promotions Ltd) in the last few days. We believe that both organisations recognise the importance of constructive collaboration in the development of the success of the West Somerset Railway, including also involvement of other important stakeholders. It is clear that over the last few years there have been a number of issues which have militated against harmonious working. Both organisations are continuing to work to resolve outstanding commercial issues, using where it is helpful the services of the Intermediary Group. They recognise that commercial success as a heritage railway must be the overriding priority, and recognise also that individual organisational aspirations should meet this overall objective. (The West Somerset Railway PLC and the West Somerset Railway Association have agreed that we issue this statement.)”
