Well last weekend was excellent, from the perspective of the station it just flowed.
Two nice locomotives bought in the visitors, busiest we have been in February for a long time.
But most importantly it bought in profit for the railway, profit is what keeps us going. We can take any amount of money over a weekend but the important bit is how much is profit.
Profit enables us to do the nice things, to renovate locomotives, to improve the visitor experience etc.
So if your reading this and regularly visit the railway, or for that matter any heritage railway just remember that every penny you spend means the railway makes more profit, and if you’re a freeloader who just takes pictures and maybe uses facilities such as toilets etc. and then spends nothing please remember you are doing nothing to secure the future of that railway. Just think that if every visitor spent nothing then there would be nowhere to visit!!
