Isn't that just the modern way. When I went to school I was taught to punctuate properly, and use a full stop at the end of a sentence. Today, include a full stop and the computer says "NO".

The full stop appended to a URL breaks the hyper-link. I agree with your comment on grammatical correctness. Perhaps a sensible alternative, we can all agree on, is to leave a space betwixt the end of the URL and the full stop.
Thus http://www.gw-svr-a.org.uk/9103_restoration_2011.html .

On Bewdley F*cebook is a lovely image of 9103 just out of the paintshop

I only caught a glimpse as we entered Bewdley but I was struck with the shine which has been achieved - the varnish job was more like glass.

Well don to our Bewdley painters

That looks and is superb!

How many other heritage railways have rolling stock to match the SVR?

I just wish more was made of it in advertising the railway.

We still seem to fall far short on that and undersell ourselves as a result.

9103 is now virtually complete and is standing outside the paintshop in all its glory!

The only outstanding job is the fitting of draft excluders to the door jambs. After that it will go to Kidderminster for a fitness to run exam and to Bridgnorth to be weighed and then it will be available for traffic!

GWR(SVR)A are arranging a special train to mark the completion of 9103, this will be on Tuesday 17th September 2013. Tickets will be 12.50 (10.00 concessions) available via info@gw-svr-a.org.uk

Readers may care to note that the restoration of 9103 was awarded the top restoration prize in the HRA 2015 Carriage Competition.

Slightly belated but a welcome recognition! It has received a few repairs lately to the droplight strap pins and the toilet doors.
