I hope lessons are learned from theft
WHILE I am saddened to hear of another theft at Railworld, I am not surprised – considering how poor the on-site security is.
It is time to ask why the site is so badly protected when they have had about 200 thefts since opening in 1993.
Bardney Station was demolished and given to Railworld about the same time, however, all we can see are mobile classrooms and a pile of bricks.
While I am aware that the charity occasionally announces grandiose schemes, like most redevelopment plans in the city, we are left with what looks like a builder’s yard – not the respected museum their website claims to operate.
Having a diverse range of interests means that I visit several museums and galleries, of differing levels of quality, each year. While Railworld isn’t the worst that I have seen, an accolade reserved for somewhere else that was also founded on inherited wealth, it comes a close second.
I hope that the charity’s trustees will learn lessons from this incident and consider a sensible solution to site security and an enhanced visitor experience. SIMON STABLER
