    I don't think that I have posted anything about one of my local railways before. This post perhaps helps with understanding the pressures faced by 1:1 railway companies.

    This is a very short reflection on how the struggles of this smaller company ultimately left the Great Central Railway with its own financial struggles!

    It may not be without controversy.

    To keep the post itself brief, the detail is carried in Appendices.
