Maintenance of Heritage Buildings

As a sector we all struggle to balance the spend of our limited financial resources between maintenance of rolling stock, track infrastructure and all those aspirational restoration projects. What often suffers is the need to carry out regular routine preventative maintenance on heritage buildings.

The attached link is a reminder of the catastrophic consequences that can befall us if this is left un-actioned.

We all know too well of similar incidents in our own heritage rail space – the need to maintain and upgrade fire protection of our historic building assets AND our historic rolling stock assets is another task we need to work together on to find financially practical solutions.
