The Transport Trust

Postby 34053 » Fri May 18, 2012 3:43 pm

I was finishing my latest STEAM Railway Magazine (No 401) and was reading the letters on the 'Mailbag' pages (110 and 111). There was a letter, responding to an article in the previous issue, regarding the urgent need to attract 'young people' to get involved with, not only Preserved Railways in particular, but also the 'Preservation' movement in general.
The letter was written by Bryan Blaxall of the Transport Trust. Now, I am somewhat ashamed to admit that this Organisation was unknown to me. However, upon investigating further, I was pleased to find that:

'The Transport Trust is the only national charity established to promote and encourage the preservation and restoration of Britain's unique transport heritage in all its forms - by air, land (road and rail) and water (sea and inland).'

I include below the link to their website:

I intend investigating this Organisation further, as the benefits of Membership appear to be quite attractive. I hope that you will also find this of interest.

You're NOT the only one who knew nothing of the Transport Trust! :-o
