The money from passenger fares and from our shops, cafes and
pubs covers the day-to-day running costs of the Railway. But it doesn't
pay for the huge restoration costs of our locomotives, coaches, track
and infrastructure, or for training our engineering apprentices.
The Severn Valley Railway Charitable Trust is helping to find the money for these and many other essential projects.
The impact we've already made
The Charitable Trust was established in 2012, and already we've had a huge impact at the Railway. Amongst other things, we have contributed £300,000 to coach restoration, £300,000 to the Heritage Apprenticeship Scheme (HAS), £150,000 to the restoration of 'Hagley Hall' locomotive and £120,000 to track re-laying.
How you can help
However you choose to help, you will be playing a part in keeping this wonderful piece of living history alive for future generations to enjoy.
