I note that the locomotive that pulled the last mail train to depart Tenterfield in 1988, 4458,  was retired by QUBE in 2013 and is sitting in their Goulburn yards

Groups can't save and maintain everything, and right now all the groups are hurting due to the current situation.

Nothing stopping you from using your initiative attempting to aquire locomotive/s for Tenterfield. You seem all talk and no action.

Keyboard jockeys should get away from their computers for a while and grow up and take on management and committee positions.

Offensive avatars and brainless comments don't rate in the real world.

There is a real world out there.

And there is a well established way of doing things in that real world.

Heritage assets are community property.

And there are funding streams to acquire community property.

Heritage NSW is one of the main funders.

In the 2021-2023 round of funding saw $5.9 million awarded in grants

In the Caring for State Heritage category, the following grants were awarded to railway heritage bodies:

Lachlan Valley Railway Society Cooperative Limited were awarded $150,000 for
conservation works to the store building at Cowra Locomotive Building.

Steam Tram and Railway Preservation Co-op Society Ltd., were awarded $42,500 for stabilisation and component replication for trailer car 72B

The Railmotor Society Inc were awarded $22,724 for the repair and maintenance of rail motor CPH1.

And that was just for railway heritage related activities.

Transport Heritage NSW also have a system of grants ranging from $15,000 to $50,000.

This is how the real world works: a preservation group must hold a board/ committee of management meeting and formally pass a resolution to apply for a grant.

The secretary then has to complete the application.

Grants are not funny money. There are rules governing their award. And grants have to be acquitted.

That is how the real world works

You really need to get off the gear and find a new hobby.

The people on this thread are in the real world and most of us hold management/committee positions within Preservation.

YAWN wrote "The secretary then has to complete the application." False, the Secretary submits the application, 9 times out of 10, volunteers write it all up to assist the secretary with the application. If it all gets left to one person all the time, nothing gets done!

At least Yawn knows some of the theory, and how to preach it others, many of whom have already been there and done it all. Having been the secretary of a preservation group for some years, perhaps I may be forgiven for having very little patience with the "what you should do" brigade.

Valvegear you should have seen Yawns original post before they edited and removed 99% of it, it was highly amusing.

It criticized most aspects of Tenterfield's current setup and the relevancy of their rolling stock choice and questioned why haven't they got off their backsides and acquired 4458 from Qube.

It was a classic "what you should do" rant and now they have the audacity to have a crack at others as being keyboard warriors and try and preach about 'the real world'!

And they have deleted a fair few other posts in the process on this thread.

Hey Champ, why don't you practise what you preach?

You might find it a tad more fulfilling than getting on here and mouthing off.
