THE growing campaign to save the Hengistbury Head noddy train received a welcome boost from Radio 2 breakfast show host Chris Evans this morning.

The DJ, who has on average 9.8million listeners, mentioned the petition to save the Noddy Train this morning.

Referring to the petition he said it had more than 16,000 signatures.

He was tweeted a series of question and answers from Bournemouth Council to “clear up any confusion”.

He said: “I just feel sorry for the Noddy Train and the people that run it and the kids that enjoy it.”

Hengistbury Head’s much-loved train service has been given notice to quit by council bosses.

The popular train service, affectionately known locally as the ‘Noddy train,’ is being axed in its 45th anniversary year so the council can run their own land trains from Hengistbury Head to Mudeford Spit.

The council claims the “time is right” to take over the service from November and eventually aims to run land trains between Alum Chine and Hengistbury Head.

But the shock announcement has left 88-year-old Joyce Faris and her staff reeling.

Joyce’s late husband Roger Faris started the service with hand-crafted engines and carriages in 1968 and, following his death in 1990, Joyce kept it going in his memory.

This story is about more than the land train it is about an arrogant and out of touch council who treat the public with complete contempt. Beesley, Williams & Co know that they can do what the hell they like because the majority of those entitled to vote will not bother and the silver voters will vote Tory because thats the way they have always vote and return Beesley & Co for another term.

The answers simple - Bournemouth council - help add to the noddy train experience by providing the extra funding for disabled access carriages etc and allow it to go as far as Alum Chine ? this way you will save face and save yourselves money and keep the jobs of the people in situ.... ?

Perhaps if it was a planning issue then there might be funding available for works to progress town vision plans, however I would imagine that suddenly there wont be any money to help a small business ?

Perhaps we need more normal people to stand for the council. I'm sure there are many out there who could do this job better and for less. So we need a campaign to get people interested not just the ones with their own agenda who want to feather their own nests.
Come on Bournemouth WE NEED YOU, DONT ASK WHAT THE COUNCIL CAN DO FOR YOU BUT WHAT YOU CAN DO FOR THE PEOPLE.

The Council can still run their train to the Hungry Hiker but STOP THERE and leave well alone something that is FINE as it is and see how long that stays in business ???

Strange. I would expect ANY council to have consulted on this and also to have discussed proposals for the future with the existing operator, particularly a long established local business. And it seems odd that the council intends to take over and run this service themselves when the general thrust of policy in recent years is for the public sector to outsource delivery. Speaking personally, it would be lovely to have a land train all the way from Alum Chine to Hengistbury Head - but not at any price. Why do Christchurch, Bournemouth and Poole officers and elected representatives so consistently seem to make such a hash of things?

From comment's on Facebook this is the people of Bournemouth's Frequently stated reason for not wanting your Land Train

We love the current land train and it's quirkiness, we do not want you to change anything

It's quite simple, and it appears to be you who are confused and don't understand, we are quite clear

Interesting that the Council's press release states (or implies) that 2 new trains are being built for their Hengistbury Head service yet staff at the seafront have said to a friend of mine who contacted them today that the new trains will actually be running on the seafront and that 2 of the existing trains that are being reconditioned will be doing the Hengistbury route. Either the council need to improve their internal communications or someone is telling half truths.

I've just seen the news report on BBC South Today. Cllr Williams appeared like a bumbling, foolish person who believes he is right and nothing will change his mind. Fortunately I'd not heard of him until today, as I'm under the excellent Christchurch Council!!! One comment from a member of the public is that this train is part of history. Absolutely true, it is viewed with affection, and I'm sure that the valid criticism that there is no disabled access could be solved by a modification to one of the carriages. If there isn't the money, JustGiving could be set up to accept contributions. Or perhaps Bournemouth Council could chip in!

I can't believe that they want to destroy this piece of history. I have been on this train every year since I was born and hearing this has made me so upset. Why do the council have to interfere? This service runs well, children love it, as do adults alike. It sounds like they are using disabled access as an excuse. Just modify one of the carriages as someone else pointed out, and if you want to run a train to Alum Chine, you can run it from where the Noddy train finishes. I am local but this land train does not just benefit us, it benefits all who visit this area. Therefore a petition that includes names of people all over the country should be acceptable to the council. We have to save this train!

Who?
It was a trade union for Noddy train Drivers in the 80's but Fern Britton and Meryll Streep were allowed in because the philosophy of train operating is all the better the farther it reaches.

Remember the Council at Christchurch thought of a harbour side walk and rejected it because the locals would NEVER want it...tose with houses around the harbour that is. That is the trouble with LOCAL OPINION! And the Govt tried to push through national seaside coastal path. Yeah! That would be GREAT for NODDY TRAINS. And lazy people amongst whom I number myself. That is what is so great about whole borough thinking, but bettered by whole nation thinking. Me, after some brainwashing, I am moving towards a New World Order of international WHOLE WIDE WORLD noddy trains. Can I drive? I have tried cycling abroad... but better in company, yet the Tour De France (Louis Malle's) subliminal film is honestly used to brainwash lazy people...honest...se e monarchprogramming(d ot)com. Look but blink a lot. You see. you see. local opinion is rubbish it supports the selfish , borough wide opinion jus supports those within the economic reach of local corruption but those who think with the generosity of sharing their world with "the WHOLE WIDE WORLD" (a rubbish film used for brainwashing nice people) ...honestly....are true Champions of the Noddy Train ideal..the ideal of a strange secret society of the Order of the Celestial railroad. Who? It was a trade union for Noddy train Drivers in the 80's but Fern Britton and Meryll Streep were allowed in because the philosophy of train operating is all the better the farther it reaches. Even to build a bridge to the moon from the woodsheds on the beach. (to couple my wagon to the American hut lover Henry Thoreau) localopinion
