I suspect somebody needs to do their percentages homework again but we'll be looking out for more information and will bring it to you as soon as we can !! No sooner said than done, the month ended with the following extract:-
The last line seems a bit curious but, given that the airport isn't all that far away from the Palma-Inca line, isn't impossible especially as there is such a large concentration of holiday resorts on the coastline near Manacor.
An update on the rant in the September Newsletter about Kodak. I'm pleased to be able to tell you photographers that the Kodak Photo CD service is still alive if not exactly kicking. You will have to be very persistent but it can still be obtained.
I've got lots more pictures from Jonathan Beaumont and quite a few from Peter Martin to scan but I'll save them for further newsletters so thats all for now - please keep the contributions of photos and news coming in. Keep your eyes on the Railway magazines as, hopefully, there will soon be an article on the Majorcan Railways by Richard Green, published by one of them and possibly another article by John Nutting in another. Whenever I discover which, when and where I will let you know. Finally, a request. Edith Knight, who has so kindly provided us with lots of old and new pictures of the Majorcan Railways, is mainly interested in Majorcan postal history and ephemera, particularly when it is railway-related. If you have anything of this nature which you no longer want, please let me know so that I can pass it on. Old postcards, letters, timetables, posters, etc., are the sort of thing she collects. I've seen part of the collection which made me quite green with envy and I'm looking forward to receiving some scans of early material which I think will fascinate anyone interested in the history of Majorca's Railways.
