I'm sure many people would donate if they could be certain that it would help, however with the current uncertainty (see thread title) people will not feel like potentially throwing their hard earned money away. Makes it quite difficult really...
The money will go towards a valuable cause and will go towards saving the railway.
I'd like to say, 90% of the people commenting on this post -do not- understand the situation themselves beyond what they have read. That includes past members who have not been up to the railway in many months. I don't mean to sound nasty, but that's the fact of the matter. There has been a bad situation months ago and people are still assuming the current situation is a flow on from that, which is not the case.
Yes, there has been an incident in the past and all issues from that have been dealt with so far as how/why it occured and I don't think anyone is trying to deny the fact it happened, you can't deny it happened, it's all there in black and white. (and some colour pictures)
HOWEVER. How much does that incident have to do with the current situation?
Well, obviously the wide held opinion is quite a lot. But is that an opinion based on hear-say because they have heard nothing else since or is that an opinion based on fact?
The issue at hand is quite simple. They have some work to do on administration, nothing more, nothing less at this point in time. They have less then 14 days to do it in which they have said is not achievable. With the current finances, the railway will not survive without the income from passengers and thus, it will be necessary to close down.
If they can cover their costs, they can continue into the future.
I am making this statement as an individual and will not be making an further comment.
I just ask, why continue with the bashing and reading into a story. There are no smoke and mirrors, what is being told in the news, is the bare facts. PRIME 7 News Report is probably the best and most accurate however.
Nuff' said from me.
