Hi, yes, large working profits in the years 1924 to 1929 made up for gross underfunding over many years. All of the working profit was plugged back into the railway and Harbours.

The story in the following years was of dramatic reductions from these levels. Christian Felling was an excellent manager, his early death in 1929 was a great loss to the railway.
