Railway Conservation. Run by Volunteers. Not for Profit.
As a registered educational charity and an independent, not-for-profit organisation, we must raise 100% of our running costs through earned income, such as fares. We can only continue to operate the UK's busiest heritage railway with the much-needed support from businesses, trusts and foundations, community groups and generous individuals like you.
Explore some of our current fundraising campaigns below, and find out how you can get involved.
Join our membership scheme and help support the railway. Your membership fee will help maintain the locomotives, rolling-stock and infrastructure.
We're committed to a world where future generations can learn how our railways changed the world, revolutionising the way we travelled and traded.
Show your support by donating to one of our Urgent Appeals: Dame Vera Lynn restoration project and Yorkshire's Magnificent Journey appeal.
