Ramsgate Railway Accidents, Tall Ships and a couple of unusual Model Village Photos
Some pictures of the various accidents at Ramsgate Sands Station caused by the incline in the tunnel followed by not much space to stop in.
I think these Ramsgate Model Village ones are from the 80s
These Tall Ships ones are from 2009
I had a bit of a go at trying to understand what is going on locally, summarised as, it looks like The Green Tara aka Belgian Cafe will open/reopen within a week, the documents relating to the Manston CPO still don't make sense to anyone. It seems to say over 200 flights a day in one part of it, I think I am still sticking with the actual achievements of the CPO, which are the council going to Conservative control and the failure to produce a local plan, which was caused by the Manston fiasco, giving housing developers a free for all in Thanet.
