‘Worth Saving’ Appeal, Thank You

Our 2020 ‘Worth Saving, was launched to combat COVID-19 as the Railway faced an uncertain future, and having fought through 2020 with the help of many individuals – WE MADE IT! And to you all a massive

Thank you……………………………..

We couldn’t have done it without you.

That the Railway is poised, once again, to recommence passenger services just as soon as virus restrictions are removed, is truly down to the generosity of many individuals and organisations who have made donations totalling over £1, 020,000 to the Railway over the past year of unprecedented issues.

And so it is a very big THANK YOU to
