Founders Club

This funding scheme aims to raise £40,000 in 18 months, with people subscribing to donate £1000 in either a one off donation or four instalments of £250 per quarter. Money raised from this scheme will be used towards Phase 1, which involves the construction of the platforms at Newtown and Berkeley as well as a new stock and loco facilities at Oldminster sidings.


A leaflet explaining more about this scheme and our plans for Phase 1, along with an application form may be downloaded here:


In return for this commitment, subscribers will receive these exclusive benefits:

  • Opportunity to ride on the first VIP heritage service.
  • Free Steam or Diesel footplate ride*.
  • Free lifetime travel on the railway for you and one other (when accompanied by yourself) on normal running days.
  • Discount entry to railway hosted special events
  • The Founders Club will only be open for a relatively short period of time and this level of benefit is unlikey to be repeated.
