    With our resident locos up together, contract jobs give us projects which we all find interesting, gives us opportunities to increase our experience, build our skill set and develop a strong team. At the end of the project we normally run the engine in or use it for a short period meaning that our crews and visitors get the chance to experience something new. And as you say, it is a direct way of turning our volunteer labour into funds for the railway which it needs in order to develop and grow.

    I can honestly say that the attitude of all our staff is very positive about these projects.
