The AGM announced plans to begin major spending on railway initiatives including Black Prince’s overhaul, service provision for a new coach works, a new more robust and accurate replica for the armoured train, and defibrillators on stations.
Further plans are being made for the RHDRA to commemorate Sir William McAlpine with special cast plates to be fixed to ‘The Bug’ with an unveiling at the End of Season events in 2018.
Members who wish to support these ventures can donate through the Special Projects Fund.
Meanwhile, the website Phase I launched in February 2018.
Phase II of the website upgrade will bring membership online later in 2018, with member access from February 2019.
