The first edition of the Trust's magazine - 'Platform' is now available, weighing in at 20 information-packed pages.
You can collect a printed copy from many locations around the railway, but we have a downloadable, pdf - format 'flipbook' version available - just click here.

Mmm. Another form of communication...

I was fully expecting to have no joy reading it on an Android tablet, but it doesn't work for me using either Chrome or Internet Explorer on a Windows 8.1 PC either. I just get a blank page. Anybody else able to access it?

Worked for me earlier on a Chromebook, although I had to download flash player first.
I'm just getting a blank page with a letter 'f' in the top left corner now.
"We recommend using Internet Explorer and have Adobe Flash Player installed to view the flipbook".
Is there a reason why it can't be made available as a good old fashioned .pdf , or even just a normal web page, that anyone can see?

It's viewable from Firefox, Chrome, and presumably others if you right-click, and do a 'save link'; can then view the pdf in Adobe Viewer. But it ought to work by clicking on it normally, and it doesn't appear to!

It worked OK with Internet Explorer, but I had to do what Pete said when using Firefox.

As Pete says, it ought to work by clicking on it normally - why make things so difficult?

Pete, I'm using Chrome v 41 and it works fine as a flip book by just clicking on it normally.

hmm--- my Chrome version is Version 41.0.2272.76 m, and it doesn't work for me. I normally use Firefox, and same there; just seems to work for me on IE.

anyway, I've sent an email to [hopefully] relevant people about this, so with a bit of luck it'll be fixed.

I thought that bad recommendations like that belonged to the 1990s! What do they suggest for platforms where Internet Explorer and Flash Player are not actually available (e.g. iPhones, assuming Apple still have their anti-Flash crusade going)?

Why oh why not just stick with what works and can be opened universally - the trusty PDF.

I've been onto svrlive admin about this -- apparently Flipbook format doesn't work with Firefox. The pdf is going to be replaced by a normal pdf which CAN be opened direct in Firefox etc; admin are going to contact the person who has the pdf version, and use this instead; hopefully won't take too long!

The svrlive website now has the option of downloading a normal pdf as well as the flipbook version.

NBI-T-0002:

The Charity is seeking new individuals and organisations to become Trust Members.

You may be aware there has always been a Trust Membership body associated with the Rolling Stock Trust and the Severn Valley Railway Charitable Trust is keen to continue this, whilst expanding the Trust Membership to reflect the additional remit the reformed charity took on board back in 2012.

The purpose of Trust Membership is to ensure that Trustees have a sounding board that represents all the different stakeholders’ operating within our Railway. To ensure that supporters and volunteers, apprentices, rolling stock owners, individuals who have responsibility and expertise on our infrastructure, on our permanent way and external bodies all assist in shaping the direction and focus of the Charitable Trust.

The aims of the Charitable Trust are to safeguard our heritage railway by helping fund the restoration of the Railway's rolling stock and infrastructure in addition to arresting the decline of heritage engineering skills, to ensure the continued preservation and operation of the Railway.

We would like to invite you to join our Membership and subsequently attend our Annual General Meeting on the 14th March. Trust Membership is open to everyone (subject to Board approval) and we will keep all Members abreast of the Charitable Trust's progress through our website, annual newsletter and social media updates

Trust Membership fees are £10.00 per annum. For further details please contact me directly on 01562 757941, shelagh.paterson@svrtrust.org.uk.Application forms can be downloaded from our website: http://svrtrust.org.uk/downloads.html. We look forward to welcoming you as Trust Members.

Kind regards

Shelagh Paterson
Director of Development, Severn Valley Railway Charitable Trust
