If it is that valuable they should have security cameras.

The report suggests that they already had cameras, but the thieves planned for and dealt with them. Assuming this was a recorded CCTV setup rather than a continuously monitored one this could have been as simple as boiler suits, balaclavas and gloves.

 

As for their comments about the Police being little or no help in the UK, we get a chance roughly every four years to say that we'd like them to be properly funded...

There's a reason why for most train shows I won't leave my locomotives and rolling stock there overnight. Too easy for someone to walk out with a pile of stuff. Also using shipping containers for storage wasn't a great idea, I know they're not expensive but they are very easy to access. A few lights with motion sensors probably could have stopped this too.
