  • Hello Andy.

    I have received an e-mail from "James Pollard" who has "added a profile to your profile." and there are several what appear to be genuine links to the  SMJ web site.

    Hw starts with "Good day. How is everything with you." then says he has "something very vital to you."

    I think this is a scam and have not opened any links. I will forward the e-mail  to you or another member if you wish.

    I cannot find "James Pollard" on the members list. Do you know if any other members have been contacted by him? Perhaps you may have heard of any instances.

    Personally, I have now moved to Marsden in West Yorkshire but I still maintain a close interest in the SMJ site and the remains of the old railway itself, especially when we have to return to visit friends and relatives South of the Trent.

    Finally, I do not appear to be listed on the members list.

  • Thought you all might like this.
  • Hello Andy, with all that's going on at the moment as regards North End & Warwick Road stations, I have to report that an error has been made.

    Photographic and map evidence of Burton Dassett platform put it on the Eastern side of Bridge 66, on the old A41 road, opposite the old sidings.

    I reference Warwickshire Railways photo smjbd7, which is of the old abandoned platform building. The caption should read ' Looking West towards Kineton ' . I must admit that I have read articles that state this platform was between the bridge and the EHLR junction, but clearly this was wrong. This means that the bridge numbers index is correct at this point.

  • So sorry I forgot to say. David Wellstood.
  • Cheers, Andy.

  • Hello Andy thank you for welcoming me to smjr railway society I look forward to enjoying beeing a  member 

                  Best wishes Ray

  • many thanks,  i have spent ages looking at the images.

    unfortunately i was born to late to see anything other than the carnage left after beeching. 

    i am at a loss to try and find images or track layout for chacombe / chalcombe halt.  there are one or two images of the station in the george & dragon - but no real links have been found on the web...  i wonder if any members have any clues....

    kind regards  daniel
