Donations keep the wheels turning
Thanks to our 500+ volunteers, the KWVR takes the public and enthusiasts back to the magic age of steam travel. The income from tickets to travel and sales in our cafés and shops help us to provide the passenger services day-to-day. But there are many more costs that keep the wheels of our trains turning.
As well as this income, it is essential that the Railway raises substantial, additional funds to maintain its infrastructure and rolling stock. The locomotive that pulls the train and the carriages you travel in not to mention the locomotives and carriages need constant maintenance and overhaul, not to mention that the Railway is over 150 years old and our bridges, viaducts, tunnels, track and buildings all need to be kept in good order.
How you can donate to the KWVR
With online banking now taking an increasing share of how we pay and make contributions, it is is still good to know that we can all still make payments by cheque.
