Cash for Cover Appeal

The Bluebell Railway is justifiably renowned for its fantastic collection of vintage carriages. We still have over 20 pre-nationalisation carriages stored in the open - to conserve them for the future it is vital to get them under cover. The Cash for Cover Appeal target is at least £385,000 to enable us to get a roof over those treasures as soon as possible, to prevent them deteriorating further. Nicholas Owen's video explains the project in more detail.

Please donate here - your support is vital to this important project.
