WSR Rail Renewal fund tops £100K

The latest figures reveal that the WSR Rail Renewal Fund 2019 has tipped over £100,000.

Included in that figure is a donation of £20,000 from The Fairfield Trust.  The WSRA Trustees wish to express their sincere gratitude to the Fairfield Trust for supprting the WSR Rail Renewal 2019 fund. This very generous donation takes the total charitable funds held for this project to just over £103,000.  There are still more gift aid pledges to recover and when those funds are received we expect to be approaching half of the required amount for this winter’s agreed works.

The Trustees, Directors, staff and volunteers on the railway would like to express gratitude to everyone who has so far donated to this fund.  The work will begin next week with the relay of some 328m of track at the Doniford Curve and some of the donated funds are now being released to pay for the necessary materials for that work to begin.

The fund will remain open for donations until the end of the year and you can donate online  at  or go to for more information and other ways of donating and supporting the project.
