Editorial


As reported in the Commercial Notes, 1987 has been our most successful year since the slump of the early 1980s. However, we must not sit back and relax - it is only the beginning of what will, hopefully, be a steady improvement both in financial and material terms Much remains to be done.

The incredible amount of work achieved this year may suggest there is a vast army of volunteers on site every weekend. Nothing could be further from the truth. The Centre is desperately short of manpower and, if we are to maintain the momentum created in 1987, we need every available pair of hands. At present it is only the unstinting energy of the dedicated few, giving up every moment of their spare time, that makes such progress possible. Commercial pressures dictate that we must maintain the pace - nobody owes our Centre anything, just because we feel it is a good cause - and those at the sharp end need all the support their fellow members can give.

Finally, we would like to welcome Rebecca Bradbury onto the Editorial team. Rebecca has the job of transforming our scribbled notes into something the printer can understand. Anyone who has attempted to read either of your Editors handwriting will appreciate the enormity of her task!


Notes:
The text in this Quainton Railway Society publication was written in 1987 and so does not reflect events in the 27+ years since publication. The text and photographs are repeated verbatim from the original publication, with only a few minor grammar changes but some clarifying notes are added if deemed necessary. The photos from the original publication are provided as scans in this internet version of this long out of print publication.
