Ghost-of goes Social.

Posted by Lawrence Russell on Saturday, July 27, 2013, In : General 
Ghost-of and Ghost-trains now have their own Facebook pages. I decided to do this some considerable time ago, as the changes that the websites are undergoing will reach a far greater audience via Facebook. Thanks to the wonders of Social Networking, the project as a whole is now getting around 2,500 visitors in a month, so it is no bad thing.

The pages are at: for Ghost-trains

and for Ghost-of

General changes, new locations and Fault finding progress

Posted by Lawrence Russell on Tuesday, September 13, 2011, In : General 
Yet again it looks like I haven't been on here for months, but there has been so much going on that I haven't been able to list it all in the blog!

2 New locations have been added, uploaded, photographed and commented on - Surbiton Hospital and the Shoreham Cement Works. They are both fantastic locations and I'm particularly happy with the photographs.

We have also been on this year's first railway trek - Shoreham to Steyning (Downslink) Railway. This ties in and will be linked to the report on...

New Developments in General

Posted by Lawrence Russell on Friday, September 17, 2010, In : General 
Now I know everyone thinks I've been sitting on me arse since June, but that's not happened! Things have been remarkably hectic here at ghost-trains. Here is a rundown of what's been going on:

I ran out of space on "ghost-of" at the end of July, so I bit the bullet and expanded the site domain, so we now have potentially 25 times as much storage space available!! That should keep us raving for a while...

A new "skin" has been purchased for "ghost-of" and I think the new brickwork look fits in b...

About the Project Coordinator

ghost aka: Loz Russell Ninja photographer, editor, web designer, programmer and the maniac who started all this off in the first place almost a decade ago! I just can't let this project slip because I feel so strongly about the complacency of the people of the UK in their need to destroy, remove and replace perfectly serviceable buildings (albeit with a little care and attention to detail). Most of these buildings could be pressed easily into alternative useage and easily modernised rather than replaced, such is the strength and longevity of Victorian Architecture. Where most of today's structures have a life of just 35 years at the very most, The Victorians considered that their creations were the last word in construction and would be there for a very long time to come. So, when they disappear or are threatened with removal as so many of the abandoned structures in this project are/were, it is nice to have some sort of record of them, hence the undeniable purpose of my crusade.
