Vandals Damage Historic Railway

Vandals Damage Historic Railway

Telford Steam Railway put the damage caused by children breaking into the site at over £4000 and hundreds of volunteer hours to put right.

The vandalism has broken windows on engines and rolling stock, some of which is owned by volunteers.

CCTV footage of the culprits is currently being handled by Police, and anyone in the area is urged to call 101 with any information.

    Disgusting!! The parents should be made to pay for the damage and maybe it might teach the parents to bring their kids up to have more respect!!!

    Some people are actually born wankers. There’s just no need for this, pure ignorance.

    Lets hope the cctv can identify them then name and shame them. They need to bring back the old fashioned borstals with no tvs, gym sessions for all wtc.

    This is awful, I know the volunteers who run this put so much time into it, those children need some serious consequences starting with cleaning this up ….

    That’s dreadful – the children & their parents should definitely have to give up their free time to help with the repairs.

    Perhaps the children have no authority figure, or maybe have a reason to taeget this. Jumping to judgement and condemnation without a deeper understanding only makes you appear to be AN ARSE!!

      Oh yeah, of course, roll out, it’s not the kids fault excuse. Which ever way you look at it, it’s shear vandalism.
      Boredom or other excuses doesnt make it ok. But then, they haven’t killed, or maimed someone, only themselves were at risk. Hopefully of being caught.
      Many of these posters on here are right, they should be made to clean up the mess, and the parents should pay for replacement windows.
      Who knows, a few days understanding why volunteers do such work might just get through to the dullards.
      And here’s the kicker, might just become so interested, as they become volunteers too, and would help prevent future needless damage. Result.

    Probably done by the same children who complain there’s nothing to do around here.

    We currently have footage of vandals causing damage to a local area and also verbally abusing a lady in her car, but unfortunately when we asked a local fb community group if anyone could DM (private) identities so the culprits details could be passed onto the Police, they took it off and said…sorry can’t do that! Nobody was asking for their details to be made public….so if under a certain age….they can just do it regardless, its ok for them to put it all over Fb to show their mates what idiots they are, but nobody else.
    Shame!
