Becoming a Donor to the SVR Charitable Trust...
Investing in the future
Thanks to its 1,500 volunteers, the Severn Valley Railway transports visitors and enthusiasts back to the magic age of steam travel. The income from ticket sales, catering and retail outlets covers the line’s day-to-day operation, but the costs don’t stop there.
It’s vital that the Railway raises substantial, additional funds to maintain its infrastructure and rolling stock. Bridges, viaducts, tunnels, track and buildings all need to be kept in good order, not to mention the locomotives and carriages. And this is where the SVR Charitable Trust comes in.
We’re about securing a long-term, sustainable future for the Severn Valley Railway. And we need your help to do that.
One of our most important projects is our Heritage Skills Training Academy. This provides apprentice and training places for young people to learn the specialised skills needed at a heritage railway like the SVR. We also contribute to the protection and preservation of the Railway’s historically important fleet of locomotives, carriages and other railway vehicles. And the infrastructure is not forgotten either, as we make funds available to repair bridges, viaducts and tunnels, which at 150 years old are unsurprisingly showing their age!
