The Churnet Valley Railway has announced that their Coach Appeal is now into five figures, raising more than £10,000.
The Appeal seeks to raise funds towards purchasing four new vehicles for the Staffordshire based line. These vehicles, three open style and one brake carriage will be paired with the railway’s current rakes of carriages, forming two sets of five coaches for passengers, along with four dining coaches.
This is the fleet the CVR will need for running trains across their track, including the extension to Leek. With the extension to Leek making good progress, the line must ensure adequate rolling stock is ready.
The Churnet Valley Railway says it is grateful for the £11,489 (at the time of writing) raised for the project, with donations, small or large, welcomed by the line.
