Onwards and upwards

I haven’t commented on this because I didn’t want to influence it, but Train Spotting World is getting an increasing visitor and editor population each month.  The increase is small, but sustained, and we’re seeing a large number of new articles and extra edits just because of that.

It was always going to be gentle progress, but the progress is positive.   Most important, Train Spotting World is paying its way from the advertising and subsidising its baby brother Plane Spotting World.
