The volunteers are doing an excellent job trying to keep the show on the road.

The board of directors on the other hand...

Without good leadership, no amount of goodwill will keep the show on the road. I note that the WSR is taking steps to beef up its board - I don't have a view on whether this will be effective, but I certainly wish them well

A new team can rarely produce results 'overnight' and sadly that's sometimes what's 'needed'. I would be very much inclined to wait and see how things go before commenting in the 'honeymoon period'.   The volunteers doing an "excellent job of keeping the show on the road" is encouraging as it would indicate the faith of that army in a positive future for the railway.
