In 2019 the WSRA turned its attention to fundraising and grant giving for the first time in many years and as a result was able to fund around a quarter of a million pounds worth of heritage project work on the West Somerset Railway last year.
To facilitate moving forward with this model the WSRA funding policy and process have been rewritten and updated to encompass funding requests from all groups on the railway, from the smallest station group to the WSR PLC. There is also a new application form, based on the old form for station groups and expanded to include larger applications as well. All are available for download from the documents page of this website.
Funding applications for projects on the West Somerset Railway are welcome from all groups, for projects that fall within the WSRA objects.
