In these challenging and uncertain times, we need your help to make sure we can get back on track after the railway's enforced closure.

Fundraising campaign still live

One of the most direct ways you can support us is with a donation. As a small heritage tourism business and charity, we run solely on the income generated by ticket sales, catering and retail. Whether you’re able to spare the equivalent of a coffee in our cafe or the cost of one Freedom of the Line ticket, or perhaps more, we’re hugely grateful!

With donations via our initial Crowdfunding campaign, along with offline donations to date, and the Gift Aid we are able to claim, we have so far raised nearly £16,000.

We are still asking for your support. The future is still uncertain, as it is unclear when we will able to viably reopen.

If you have yet to donate, you can still do so.

What if more money is raised?

In this period of uncertainty, we really do need all the help we get. Any extra money raised gives us added security in these challenging times, and anything that is not used to support the railway through the COVID-19 crisis will go towards our ongoing work to preserve and share our railway heritage for years to come.
