No problem.

Just for info, apparently the links Photobucket give under "Direct" time-expire but a direct URL to the page copied from the browser URL would appear to work - more info at viewtopic.php?f=4&t=8002 .

Sunday 24th July saw a remarkable 102 visitors to the box over the 3 hours we were open - the highest recorded for an ordinary Sunday afternoon opening.

Repainting the outside of the box, for the second time since the original restoration in early 2008, has been started by a professional painter. Work has also started on applying fresh preservative to the fence around our site. Photos will be published in due course on our News 2017 page at http://www.tlr.ltd.uk/sigbox/news/news_2017.eb.

We have received some information on the intended rebuild of the west side of St Albans City station next to us. As yet insufficient for us to work out how to get a 'Visitor Centre' for the Trust adjacent to our site with any certainty. We watch and wait!
