RLA AGM 2014
We were going to organise our 2014 general meeting in December . However owing to the commitments and non availability of directors during this month, we have had to move it to January 2015! We will confirm the exact date and venue over the next couple of weeks on this page and there will be a mail out to members. Please note that as is customary ,there is no monthly member's meeting in December. The next one will be on the last Thursday of January as posted at the head of our home page above.
Things TO Do
Don’t forget to 'like' the new Protecting Folkestone's Heritage Face Book page:-
...and don't forget the 2 RLA facebook pages... Remembrance Line and Battle of the Folkestone Harbour Branch on
It has been brought to our attention by Folkestone Harbour Company that they are not responsible for the projected demolition of the harbour station- evidently because Network Rail have not yet transferred ownership because of freeholder identification difficulties. This with reference to the upper part of the line, above the inner harbour. This has effectively stalled any track lifting and given Folkestone Harbour Company the perfect cop out line of saying that 'The harbour station's nothing to do with us'...so all we have done is added Network Rail as an additional recipient of our 'Halt the Destruction of Folkestone Harbour' petition! Please sign this,by the way, if you haven't already!

Halt the Destruction of Folkestone Harbour Railway Station
Recently we have (via the Auspices of 38 degrees) run a national petition to avert the destruction of Folkestone Harbour Station by Folkestone Harbour Company and as I write , it is still running- latest total 2107. Please sign this and share to everyone you know with a viewpoint similar to yours. Here is the link :
