Hi everyone
Just wondering if there is anyone interested in the idea of setting up a preservation group in the Tamworth, New England area?

There is already a group in Armidale:

Thanks for that info.
It seems the NSW ARHS has no knowledge of this group.

Hi



There is the Tenterfield Railway Station Museum and the Australian Railway Monument and Rail Journeys Museum at Werris Creek. The website address for Tenterfield is http://www.tenterfieldbiz.com/railway



To set a group up would need a lot of hard work, people to form a group and plenty of money and red tape. John Holland Rail (I think) are the operators of all branch lines in that area and would need to be contacted and possibly the local council/shire and all the local farmers and also the local member of parliament to assist you.



Regards,



Grahame Thurling

If there is, you won't get it going by asking for interest in "a preservation group."

If you can't tell people about which loco/station/line you are going to preserve, it just sounds like an invitation to a Mothers Union meeting.

Well then, how dose one found out if there is anyone interested in starting a preservation group???
I'm sure your reply will be very interesting.
And obviously you like to be spoon feed everything. "This is what we are going to do, this is how we are going to do it, and if you don't like it well that's just too bad".
Obviously you just like to be a passenger, and just go along for the ride, if you could even be bothered.
No one has bothered to asked me, "What's your plans?"
Obviously this is the wrong web site to find like minded people, what a complete waste of time.

One negative comment and you've tossed the toys out of the cot. I suspect you'll run into far greater challenges than what you've found here. Good luck. It will be character building.

Well that's TWO negative comment's, and a cheap shot.
Can't even ask me what my preservation plan's might be.
Just negative and cheap shots.
Obviously other keyboard warrior, just looking for the chance to lay the boot into someone.
You only confirm that being on this web site is a complete waste of time.
Everyday I run into FAR greater challenges then you and your mate could ever possibly cause me.
So take your TOYS, and go play somewhere else.

Still waiting for your intelligent reply. Laughing

If you can afford to dismiss constructive criticism (including a hint to share your vision) in such a cavalier manner then you're right, you obviously don't need a website.

Try the notice boards at the local supermarkets.

MODERATORS PLEASE CLOSE.

It would be wasted on you, mate. You haven't even told us what you're preserving.

Constructive criticism???
I have not found anything you have said constructive.
No, "Hey mate, maybe you should try doing this instead".
No, what did you say???
"If there is, you won't get it going by asking for interest in "a preservation group."".
How is that constructive???

I never said I didn't need a website, I don't know where you got that idea from.
What I said was.
"You only confirm that being on this web site is a complete waste of time."

If you knew the first thing about setting up a business, then you would know that the first thing you do is market research.
Is your product going to sell in the area you plan to setup in?
Is there interest in a preservation group in Tamworth?
Or is the interest in the New England?
If the best advice you can give me is to "Try the notice boards at the local supermarkets."
There is no way on gods green earth, that I would ever employ you in my business.

Why do you want the moderators to close this?
Ashamed of what you have written?
you realized I don't lay down and take it, I bight back, and you can't handle that?
You have shown us all what you are, deal with it.

Have you asked what I'm considering? NOPE.
Have you expressed interest in forming a group? NOPE.
There is a number of options, I can not do any of them alone, I need to find other people who are interested in setting up a group, then as a group decide which would be the best option.
And your little cheap shot has been noted as well. MATE.

MATE - you would have to be the world's worst salesman. You tell us you want to form a group, and then expect us to fall over ourselves chasing you to find out what the hell you're talking about. If you want to form something, try generating some interest instead of expecting the world to beat a path to your door, and then bitching when nobody does. You have a grossly exaggerated idea of your own importance.

Finally; it wasn't a cheap shot - it was a carefully considered comment based upon the evidence you have provided.

Make that THREE...Oh, wait...


Can't even ask me what my preservation plan's might be.
Dutchman
I'm far too lazy and disinterested to do that. Why do I need to prompt you anyway?


Just negative and cheap shots.
Dutchman
You've already said that. Nobody likes repetition.


Obviously other keyboard warrior, just looking for the chance to lay the boot into someone.
Dutchman
You left yourself wide open there, Ol' Bean. Criticism doesn't necessarily equate to bullying either. You can either take it on board, or you can behave like a petulant princess and throw a tantrum. Latter option taken I see.


You only confirm that being on this web site is a complete waste of time.
Dutchman
Yes, and?


Everyday I run into FAR greater challenges then you and your mate could ever possibly cause me.
Dutchman
The fact that you've run into a huge rant about some rather benign comments on an internet forum (of all things), would have me believe otherwise.


So take your TOYS, and go play somewhere else.
Dutchman
You're only new here, right? Might be an idea not to upset the locals too much. There are quite a few people here who could tear you another one without blinking, nor giving a second thought about it. Unless of course, that is why you are here - in which case, you're fair game.


Remember this.
"If you can't say anything nice, don't say anything at all".
It will help you build character.

Ah. Sweet irony...
