Please note that this website is to be reformatted so some of the pages may differ in layout. I do apologise for the fact you cannot presently directly access the information that I once gave about the operations of the miniature railway in Thorne Memorial Park, I did offer to continue the website at no cost as it been from 2000, but the societies committee decided not to take up the offer when I resigned from the D&DMESL. Instead the society decided to create a new website called "The Official Site for Thorne Railway" and of course a new domain name totally oblivious in their what seems to be a lack of knowledge about publicity and the consequences that would result. This means that the extensive publicity information I had put out of the original website for the railway, contact addresses and telephone numbers for eleven years. So therefore there is still publicised in many tourist information centres and other websites and publications which they do not seem to have taken much action about by the phone calls, e-mails and other enquiries I still receive.
