Tremendous work to restore repair build capacity and engage community has been accomplished in the last two years especially in Darjeeling Himalayan Railway. 

What are the improvements you can suggest? 

How to balance the dynamic train operation and safety aspects with that of static heritage conservation and ever increasing urban pressure & greed?

For years, a restrictive definition and flawed understanding prevailed- no replacement of coaches even when they were creaking and unsafe. 

NOW - Vistadome glass ceiling coaches similar to Swiss heritage lines will operate 

Interacting with stakeholders helps manage sites better by understanding expectations and best practices. Railway heritage is at once static and dynamic. Enthusiasts need a modern and safe way to navigate the site

Thanks EdHeritage for the information. Is there any assistance for the railway enthusiasts to upkeep and repair the traditional coaches?
