The West Somerset Railway PLC’s Board have released an Official Statement regarding the present COVID-19 (Coronavirus) outbreak which is currently having huge implications on the whole Heritage Railway sector.
Like every other preserved railway in the United Kingdom (UK), the West Somerset Railway is currently closed due to the UK Government’s advice and instructions to help reduce the spread of COVID-19 and to protect the National Health Service (NHS) during this outbreak.
Following the hard work and support last year, the West Somerset Railway was hoping 2020 would be another year of success to help the railway out of its difficult times.
Unfortunately, this recovery is now on hold. The line is likely to be closed until at least June 2020, meaning for the first six months of 2020, the WSR will only take a small amount of revenue. Therefore the West Somerset Railway need your support more than ever.
