Last month the GSNLRS held a couple of society stands at the Mid Hants ‘Watercress Line’ Autumn Steam gala and the Exeter Garden Railway show. Both of these events were a huge success with the society selling lots of memberships and mugs. A big thank you goes out to those who helped man our stands and those who visited us to make both events a success.
Stuart Black has continued his work on the second 35011 print that is exclusive to our shareholders. It features General Steam Navigation in her 1957 condition with a cut down tender and later BR crest. Once the prints are finished we will be messaging our shareholders individually to choose which one they want for their collection. For those who are getting all 3 we will message you when they are ready to be dispatched. Stuart has kindly let us share his second print of 35011 which is still a work in process. For those who are interested in purchasing shares and helping put the steam back into General Steam Navigation you can find out more here.
Over the last month we have been working hard on the media front with adverts for the society appearing in several railway magazines and some articles. Our hard work saw us almost double our membership in less than 6 weeks which is a great achievement. The project is going from strength to strength and with each part we purchase the dream of an original Merchant Navy comes a step closer.
As always thank you for your support
