Two of our three Vice Presidents are leaving us, as they did not stand for re-election to the Scottish Parliament.
We are very grateful to Gail Ross and John Finnie for their work in promoting the development of rail in Scotland.
Gail and John were both members of the Rural Economy and Connectivity Committee which considers and reports on transport matters as part of its brief.
John has been in the news in rail circles this year for being the moving force behind the extremely impressive Rail For All report he commissioned on behalf of the Scottish Green Party. He was always a welcome presence on the Cross-Party Group on Rail in Holyrood.
We wish them all the best for the future.
