    Restoring Railways
        The English are a naturally conservative people; we instinctively resist change and yearn for the past. Many people take an interest in history by preserving old buildings and structures. Even those who do not take an active part in such work often visit ancient castles, houses and gardens or watch with interest the many TV programmes about archaeology and restoration work. One aspect of this is the proliferation of preservation societies dedicated to the task of restoring old railway lines and running old trains, frequently with steam engines, on them.
