It was originally intended to use this area of the web site as a Guest Book where site visitors could leave messages for all to read
on any matters relating to the restoration of Glasgow 488.
Unfortunately such a feature seems to be a magnet for spammers to leave nonsense messages whose underlining purpose was nothing more
than promoting their own web site. As many as 20 or more such messages were being left on our sister site 796.trolleybus.net and
that takes a lot of effort to clear up the resultant mess.
So there is no interactive Guest Book on this site. Instead the Webmaster will capture the most interesting comments made within emails sent to
and reproduce them manually in the adjacent red box.
We really do appreciate comments made and welcome contributions to any page on this web site but in reproducing
feedback received, Hugh Taylor does not necessarily endorse anything appearing below.

Additionally a mailing list has been sent up to keep those interested in the restoration project informed as work proceeds. If you would like to join
this mailing list, then please sign up here: 488 Mailing List.
The facility is designed primary for the Trustees to push out information to all subscribers but it is initially configured for any subscriber
to post messages to all subscribers. That feature will be discontinued if abused. To post a message to all registered users, then use this email
