Our main appeal at present is the Wall-to-Wall Double Donations Dash for the Cash for Cover Appeal - we need to raise a minimum of £250,000, to complete the walls around the OP4 shed, and the main structure of the Heritage Skills Centre.  The more we raise beyond the target, the more complete the shed will be.

With £100,000 pledged by a donor as match funding, we need to raise at least a further £150,000 from our other generous supporters.  The match funding has now been secured, but we need to raise as much as possible before the appeal closes on 31 December 2018.

Every £10 you donate is worth £12.50 to the project if Gift-Aided.

Please use the "Website" link to the appeal donations page below.

"Funding for the Future" is our over-arching campaign, and covers several major threads. We are urgently raising funds to help preserve our infrastructure and unique collection of steam locomotives and rolling stock.

In particular we currently have a number of specific major appeals:
  • Cash for Cover (Horsted Keynes Carriage Shed extension - OP4)
  • Tr(ack) Action - to raise £250,000 to relay half a mile of track - see more details of this appeal via the link at the bottom of this page - or join the Trek Trek.
  • Keep up the Pressure (Locomotive boiler appeal)
We fund preservation and skills training to ensure the future of our steam heritage.
