    Do HRs generally have a Director of Security? Does the umbrella organisation have a consultant on this? It is as simple as having a man in place or irregular visits to crime prone locations. Criminals do not like company! It is galling to read of the damage done and more so when volunteer led restorations are involved but in todays milieu Railways must be more vigilant and address this issue as a major problem. You just cannot leave stock etc in isolated locations without surveillance either by persons.or technology, donors pockets are getting stretched thin these days without preventable losses repeating all too frequently.

    I know how much my church pays in insurance premiums, and how much work we have to do to keep it that low. That's in a town centre, and with CCTV etc.

    I'm very reluctant to criticise others for being unable to give security the attention it possibly warrants, when it is one of a number of "must do" activities and contributes nothing in itself to the objectives of the organisation.

    The damage to the coach and the fire of the wagon must be heartbreaking for all at the S7C railway.
