The Great Western Leftover perhaps?

Well, I would not fancy being part of the sales & marketing team this morning. Expect a justifiable flogging from Ďsirí and the Operations dept.

This was billed as a special event but why when it was a bank holiday weekend and good passenger loadings should be the norm? Should have been promoted in a different and much better way.

It was too risky selling a 3 day special event based too heavily on 1 King class loco and that was to come true out on Saturday. How much did this hurt the profit margins and the SVRís reputation?

Note to Marketing - must try thinking more sensibly in future.

May I suggest some old fashioned telephone directories are strategically placed in readiness for your justifiably deserved flogging! Don't let it happen again !

Bank holidays can be very variable.
