The brand new home of Railcam is only a matter of days away, and we have a launch date pencilled in for Friday 27th July 2018.
Many hours and £££s have gone into a complete rebuild of the creaking old site, which was built when we had a very small number of cams and not many more members! The new site has been professionally built with a complete rebuild of the ‘back office’ whilst we have tried to keep the general feel of the old page, with a few tweaks and improvements thrown in. We are very proud of what has been produced and we want to thank everyone involved for giving up their time from site builders, Nighthawk Software Ltd, our volunteers and those who have helped us out with testing.
As with anything new there are bound to be the odd glitch along the way, there is always something you don’t find out until you throw open the doors and everyone piles in, so please bear with us while we iron anything out that crops up, our volunteers will be on hand but we are just that, volunteers, and have ‘real’ jobs to be doing as well.
Please Note - On Friday, there may well be some downtime while we switch everything over.
