A ticket for new members
A striking new RDS recruitment leaflet has been produced by executive officer Nat Taplin. It promises a journey from car culture to rail future. On the other side is campaign information and a membership application form.
The response is being tested in an advertising insert in Rail magazine. Over the next 12 months RDS will be printing 50,000 leaflets in a bid to boost our membership. Copies of the new leaflet can be ordered from Alan Crowhurst, 2 Clematis Cottages, Hopton Bank, Cleobury Mortimer, Kidderminster DY14 0HF
Our aim is to have 5,000 members by the year 2000.
Our contacts in America have told us that the new Dallas light rail system has attracted 300% more passengers than expected. People like trains!

Railfuture is an independent, voluntary group representing rail users in Britain with 20,000 affiliated and individual members. It is not funded by train companies, political parties or trade unions, and all members have an equal say.
Railfuture campaigns for cheap and convenient rail services for everyone; better links for buses, bikes and pedestrians; policies to get more heavy lorries on to rail; new lines, stations and freight terminals. In short, a better rail service and a bigger rail system for both passengers and freight.
Railfuture is pro-rail but not anti-road or anti-air. However, we campaign for a switch from road and air to rail. We do not interfere in the running of the railway - we campaign for the quality and range of services provided, not how they are delivered. We are the only champion of all rail users.
