Neil proposed forming a Glossop line forum to put forward our ideas on Trains, Timetabling and Station facilities. This, he felt, is especially important with refranchising in the offing and major projects such as the Northern Hub taking place. After thorough discussion the concept was agreed with the proviso that the forum be a place to put forward agreed shared ideas. It would not be a campaigning nor a political forum. Nor would it detract from the friends main purpose of enhancing their stations in agreement with Northern Rail.
It was agreed to met again in October to produce an informed wish list to be sent to Northern,The HPAHVCRP, TfGM and local councils. Paul Marsh kindly agreed to set up a dedicated web site for the forum so that local passengers could, if they wish, contribute their views. It was agreed that the High Peak and Hope Valley Community Rail Partnership, TfGM and Theo be informed of the Glossop Line Forum's imminent existence!
