I SUPPOSE the fiasco regarding the Poole Park miniature railway is something we probably should have foreseen, especially considering the council's recent record of messing things up and ignoring public opinion.

Councillor Rampton says the troubles are not in the council's control. He is ignoring the obvious fact that the council gave the contract to The Friends of Poole Park, who quite clearly are and were incapable of not only running the railway but of also keeping their volunteers happy. The general voting public of Poole were more than happy with how the trains were run under the previous holder Chris Bullen who had run the line perfectly adequately for 13 years. So come on Poole council, pull your finger out and get the railway up and running for the summer so the children of locals and visitors can enjoy the ride.
