Thanks for your email detailing the Bishops Lydeard Shuttles.
It is unfortunate that the number of operating dates have been limited - particularly the absence of Sunday operations – but I understand the reasons and realise you had no alternative in view of your train crew availability.
We are still keen to help GWR market the service and if you could supply us with publicity material, we shall be willing to display and distribute it wherever you deem fit and to include it on Railfuture’s stands at venues such as the Norton Fitzwarren event on 3/4 August. I presume GWR will issue a press release to all local media, detailing the service?
May we seek your permission to distribute Minehead Rail Link Group literature outlining our aims on a limited number of the shuttle trains? Perhaps you could be good enough to let us know if this is possible.
We look forward to playing our small part in helping make these shuttle trains a success and hope it will lead to ever bigger and better things in the future, for the benefit of the local community and the reduction of the local carbon-footprint in these environmentally sensitive times.
Thanks again and best wishes
Publicity Officer, Minehead Rail Link Group
