ALR - What railway is this?

I notied that the ALR and also some other lines just used their initials when adding dates to the diary on this site. Some also do this when using You Tube Etc. Whilst I am sure that many would know what railways these initials refer too, I am also sure that many don't.

Can I suggest that railways use a full title when promoting their activities, and dare I suggest even give a hint of where they are? They might even find they get more patronage!

-Just a thought - :-) - By the way - What and where is the ALR?

Ashmanhaugh Light Railway? If this is the one it is in Norfolk.

Lambrail, I couldn't agree more. In fact I have asked the same question on here.

I can confirm that ALR is the Ashmanhaugh Light Railway, as that was the one about which I enquired too!

There do seem to be a lot of members who post information on the basis of "well, you know what I mean" when, being scattered, many of us do not know to what the poster is referring. This applies to events and pictures in the gallery as well.

I have been there -a very lovely railway.
I also agree that location details in the Photos & videos section would also be useful. My belief is that many non 7 1/4 members would browse the site and many prospective passengers and members are being missed.

Thanks for the replies.
