Emailing list

If you would like to receive an occasional email flagging-up newly added railtour information, please write to us as above; we would be pleased to add you to our emailing list.

The emailing list is operated via Google Groups as it became rather large for traditional email-servers to cope with. However it is still operated as an emailing list. It is no longer (March 2018) possible for users to add themselves to the list via Google Groups, as doing so was resulting in non-delivery of emails unless we intervened: please email us with your request instead.

While we do also operate a postal mailing list, this costs us a considerable amount of time and money; so we urge you to partake of the emailing list instead—you receive the same information plus timely updates, and it reduces our bills and the workload for our volunteers.

Twitter @HastingsDiesels

As an alternative to the emailing list, you could instead receive notifications of new material by following us on Twitter: @HastingsDiesels.
