Calling all 71000 Trust Members and Friends

The Trust now has a Member's database enabling members to receive email updates and newsletters.

This helps to save significant costs which the Trust currently incurs for printing, stationery and postage, not to mention the substantial effort needed by Trust volunteers to print, label and post this information.

If you have not already registered for email updates and you have an email address please email the Webmaster with your full name and membership number.

This month's email update, for example, has the names of the winners of the recent raffle, an update regarding the locomotive and a report from the sales team regarding their weekend at the ELR steam gala.

To keep up to date with news regarding all things 71000 it is important for members to register.
