Today marks a significant milestone in the development of our railway with the launch of our new website. The format makes use of state of the art graphic design and is driven by a robust 'back office' which guides the visitor gently to a point of sale. We have developed comprehensive 'bolt ons' so once a person has bought a ticket for a meal on the Derbyshire Countryman train they are offered gifts to purchase to enhance their experience such as flower bouquets , champagne as well as custom decorations to personalise their experience.
Keep an eye out too for our new V.I.P. evenings when we introduce the luxurious 'Ryedale Saloon' for special events and private hire together with new 'taster' experiences which will create more opportunities for members of the public to take the controls of one of our diesel locomotives.
Visitor feedback informed us that the majority of people who visit our railway for the first time, view our website prior to their visit. Our website is our shop window and as such we feel the high definition graphics and pictures together with its intelligent back office and on-line ticketing purchasing ensures it will showcase the railway at its best as well as increase our commercial activity. I am grateful to Leigh for all his his creative energy and hard work together with Dominic Ainsworth for his guidance and advice with the website structure.
You are most welcome to make suggestions on any additions or modifications you wish to see to either Leigh or myself.
Compliments of the Season,
All the best, Tom
