Railwatch 087 - March 2001
Rail Development Trust
Where will you find a study of putting trucks on trains, an action plan for safer stations, an explanation of grants for freight facilities and a statistical report from Centro?
These and 200 other reports and documents are held by the Railway Development Trust, or by RDS members on behalf of the trust - which is a charity.
A list of these documents, which are retained for research and educational purposes, has now been compiled and classified into 46 categories including infrastructure, EU, costings, urban railways.
They may be borrowed for study and research purposes. For a copy of the list, please send a large SAE to Trevor Garrod, Secretary to the Trust, 15 Clapham Road, Lowestoft, NR32 1RQ.
He will also be pleased to hear from any RDS member with further material which he or she is willing to donate or make available to the trust. It is hoped to have all the material available on one site.

Railfuture is an independent, voluntary group representing rail users in Britain with 20,000 affiliated and individual members. It is not funded by train companies, political parties or trade unions, and all members have an equal say.
Railfuture campaigns for cheap and convenient rail services for everyone; better links for buses, bikes and pedestrians; policies to get more heavy lorries on to rail; new lines, stations and freight terminals. In short, a better rail service and a bigger rail system for both passengers and freight.
Railfuture is pro-rail but not anti-road or anti-air. However, we campaign for a switch from road and air to rail. We do not interfere in the running of the railway - we campaign for the quality and range of services provided, not how they are delivered. We are the only champion of all rail users.
Railfuture is the campaigning name of Railfuture Ltd.
