Heritage Railways

In many parts of the world heritage railways are operated by volunteers. Our system would seem to be ideal for this especially as it's operation is mainly seasonal. The cost to the taxpayer is currently excessive although the value of the system to the tourist economy is very great. Why not float the idea in the appropriate press and assess the response.

Why the contribution is important

Government will sooner or later find the railways too costly to operate and will initially cut back on services and the maintenance slowly but surely strangling them whereas if they organise a volunteer operation now then it could passed over in good order.
