Web Site Changes

You’ll probably notice that there’s now a tab at the top of the page entitled WRHA Members Section: this password protected section currently contains PDF copies of all the editions to date of “The Waverley”, the Association’s journal. Other documents and publications will be added in due course.

In addition, the Border Union Railway Company (BURC), the operating company set up by WRHA to eventually run the heritage railway at Whitrope, now has its own web site: At present, there is a password protected section containing the latest copies of those parts of our Safety Management System (SMS) relevant to WORKING VOLUNTEERS. This includes things like our Rule Book, Health & Safety Policy Statement of Intent, Drugs & Alcohol Policy etc. Over the winter, training material, manuals and other documentation pertinent to specific, safety critical roles on the railway (eg. train driver, guard, track patroller etc.) will be uploaded and available to view by those volunteers who state an interest in being trained to carry out these duties in the future.

Should you wish access to either of these password protected areas, please drop an email to: with your name and membership number and we’ll be glad to provide you with the details.
