Don't see the point in putting that link on. The twitter account can only be viewed by approved persons.

Perhaps someone can put the picture on the SVREngineeringSteam twitter feed, which is open to all to view. However that has been quiet since 25th July, so maybe someone is on holiday. Perhaps eventually the image will appear on the SVR Engineering website, but that only gets updated once a month at best now.
"Websites" appear to be "old hat" now. I find all this social (and apparently very "anti-social" at times...)media all very confusing.

Mercifully I dont feel the need to (and hope I never will..) spend my life "texting" tweeting" "facebooking" and the like, and walking around forever peering at a very small screen.

There has to be more to life, surely?

It's yet another example of the SVR failing to have a joined up approach to the digital age. Wasn't SVRLive supposed to be the one place to go to for all things SVR?

The inclusion of the word live implies that it would be constantly updated

No, I don't think so.

SVRLive is a new site which will allow the Severn Valley Railway to communicate more effectively with people who are involved with the railway.

The image (boiler out of frames) is also linked from the SVR official twitter site, and is still not viewable as such.
As mentioned above it does get a bit tedious looking at all the various options to find something. Much better if there was one place to go for news--updated frequently, and images, even if you are a "multi media/ multi tasker", as they mentioned on the BBC News yesterday. Youngsters nowadays are apparently very good at that.

My answer is one TV, an analogue radio, and----books, remember them? Wink

Is Ian Walker not able to post on Twitter under SVREngineering as well as Duncan? If somebody wants to save a copy of the picture and E-Mail it me, I'll host and post here.

Like SVR Live?

Patrick Hearn will no doubt contradict me, but I associated Live with live up to date news

I had a look at SVRlive. on the newest things

There was a news update from the Holidings board dated the 2nd of August listing all sorts of activity and plans. The monthly updates were new and started with this site.

On the Traffic Notice page was the latest Traffic Notices, which never used to be public before this site.

Sure, looking at Bridgnorth loco news it is titled summer and you could say that it is not the latest most up to date news. Again though go back even 12 months this was not there. I am not saying things are perfect, however they have moved forwards a long way.

The "Bridgnorth MPD" News on SVR Live is for May, and takes you up to the end of April (2013....), so not uptodate.

There needs, as others have rightly mentioned, to be one source for news which is kept uptodate. In the case of motive power, is it to be twitter, the SVR Engineering website, SVR Live, or indeed here on SVR-online?

As in other walks of life, we appear to suffer from "too many media options" now.

Webmaster - should this move to one of the website threads?

Without prolonging the O/T discussion too much, single site(s) for different markets would be a good thing to have, but:

- the railway needs to communicate with people in the way they want to be communicated to, which includes social media. It couldn't stop using Twitter, for example.

- different media will have different focus, this medium is aimed at the enthusiast and member, the Facebook Families page has a different audience.

- it's possible (and I think the railway should do so more) to link sites. Currently Twitter feeds into the Facebook site, for example. A side effect of that is that material aimed at one source may/will be fed to another, so that the Family material would feed into the enthusiast site and vice versa. Do you want daily feeds on the pirates on here?

- many of the 30 or so SVR-related sites might not feed in anyway

- anything which involves manual intervention (Pete Cherry, Tigger and me commonly cross post) requires someone to do it and - as you've seen - you don't get everything you want when you want it from volunteers! To do all what is being suggested would, I suggest, require paid activity.

- as far as SVRLive is concerned, I didn't understand it was set up to funnel all news from different sources in real time. IMO part of the above might be improved if the number of people able to post news on SVRLive was increased? It wouldn't solve all issues, but it would be an improvement.

I understand from the AGMs that a communication strategy is planned
