Moves in this direction do take place but are not that widespread. Many railways struggle with the escalating costs of maintaining their infrastructure and those costs necessarily have a higher priority than the purchase of particular locos. Whilst active support for particular locos remains the blend of earned steaming fees, active fundraising, volunteer input and specific bequests probably gives the cheapest way of providing motive power. Once a loco becomes part of a wider whole then the subsidy of fund raising and volunteer input tends to attract less volunteer participation. The locos which will get sidelined are those which do not earn a reasonable proportion of their costs through poor operating agreements, are unsuitable for the available commercial work or are in the hands of inactive but hoarding owners.
