    That is precisely my point. People will spend what they have on the things they prefer. But they will also spend on things they didn't know they preferred, if your marketing team is good enough! As it was ever thus in railways.

    But people have to be motivated to part with their money. A work colleague of mine read something about the A1 Trust in a newspaper and asked me about it. He wasn’t an enthusiast but remembered the A1s from his childhood in York and became a Covenanter.
    That money would have never been put to any other railway cause and I’m sure he’s not alone.
