Current Appeals

In 2024 we are planning to launch a brand new appeal to support the development of the Dean Forest Railway. This aspect has been hit hard by the onset of the Covid pandemic in 2020, with the priority having been on ensuring that the DFR continues to operate. Despite this, our work has still been ongoing with the restorations of a Midland Brake Van, Peckett 'Uskmouth No. 1' and Mark 1 TSO no. 4862 progressing well. If you would like to make a donation to support our efforts, follow the link below:
