The former "Vintage Transport Group"

When the domain vintagetransport.org.uk was registered, a group of Railway volunteers known as the "Vintage Transport Group" was responsible for organising three events each year:

As of 2010, the Classic and Sports Car Show is not running, the Vintage Transport Weekend has been changed to the Vintage Gathering with a new organiser, and the 1940s Weekend has now evolved into the Railway at War with its own organising committee.

With no separate events to promote, the domain and website would otherwise be out of date or empty. It was decided to use the site to promote all activities at the Railway.
