Re: Colchester24 Project

Hi Phil,
Further to my recent thread on the Colchester 24 project (under photo shoots), I have registered the group on the Colchester 24 website so I don't think there is necessarily a need for each member to register if they are not inclined. I am posting any updates I receive in that thread.

Re: Steam evening 14th May 2011

Hi Sarah, Yes it is from 6:00pm onwards on Saturday at Chappel. We will probably get there as near to 6:00pm as we can. There is a fee of £5 per person so as long as our other halfs pay I don't think it will be a problem. I think they just want it known that it is not a ride-on day and don't want lo...

Hi Trevor,
I had a look at the East Anglian Railways Museum website and found this http://www.earm.co.uk/events/runningdays.php so I assume we can just turn up anytime from 6:00pm as long as we pay our fiver.

Hi Trevor,
So sorry I'm only just replying. I got distracted by the sunshine and then the wedding and it went right out of my mind. If you could find out any more about it for me, that would be great.
Thanks.
