Re: Railwells 2017

Having recently received an update from Chris Challis, I have now published the current show details on the Scalefour Southwest 25 page. I imagine the webmaster for the Railwells site will be updating there soon too.

In due course, I do anticipate publishing the guide here too.

It might be because it's a Guest Book thread.


Correct. However, I have now changed that, so that we can use attachments as usual. Guests posts still require approval before they will be seen.
