It seems that the public still cannot leave things alone. At the end of May, for two days in a row, the Midland Railway – Butterley became victims of vandalism, which included smashing windows on a BR Mark 1 coach, along with signs of activity on a corridor door and also at the Narrow Gauge site.
The acts of vandalism have just made the list of things to do longer, after the Coronavirus pandemic.
Security across the site has been tightened, and more patrols are now being taken out.
The repairs to the vandalism will come at a heavy cost to the railway, which is taken even more to heart while the railway is closed due to Coronavirus.
The Midland Railway – Butterley said, “Your messages of encouragement and offers of voluntary help have been expressed around all our volunteers, and it is very heart warming in the tough times we’re in as a railway and a country.”
“If you feel you can make a donation to help us financially, every penny donated will be used to support the Midland Railway Trust Ltd through these difficult and uncertain times to help us secure our future.”
