Perhaps a shake-up of the 'steady as she goes' thinking at the higher echelons of the DSCR might be worthy of considerationReally? A recent discussion with a person who is well connected within the government ranks, and whose job it is to look after the interests of the heritage railways, indicated that the DSCR is probably the best run heritage railway in Victoria at the present time. It has a better handle on how to run a railway within the budgets allocated and is free from the problems plaguing many of the others.
Yet a bunch of people here, none of which have any experience at running a heritage railway, would like to upset the running of the DSCR because they 'think' they know how to run it better?
For the sake of saying it yet again, the DSCR have studied their customer base, identified a strategy upon which to operate their railway and are doing so successfully.
If you think you can do better, start up your own heritage railway and run it from Trentham back to Bullarto or to Carlsruhe, but leave a functioning, well managed group alone.
