The younger generation are interested when you can grab their imagination, there's a group who plan to build a 'Baby Deltic' from a class 37, the Class 15 and Co-Bo guys are doing great things. Possibly if we could turn their talents from turning a Citron Saxo into a low riding sound machine, into a T9 high stepping Geryhound sound machine, I'm more than willing to help, all we need is a spark.
Poor ticket sales, and a lack of revenue are part of the current economic climate (I'm not going to get dragged into politics or any other debate on this thread). All the preserved railways are feeling the pinch at the moment, but we rode the storm in the eighties, and I'm sure we will again. Let's just give a bit of a cheer and support for the guys with the vision, ambition, and sheer bloody mindedness, to make things like this happen.
Sorry, I forgot about the new Patriot build, and the new Clan, And the Bloomer, and The J94............ And some silly bugger might want to build a Bullied Leader........Now where did I put those blueprints?
