The Nene Valley Railway has published a short film in an appeal for donations to help support their heritage line during the COVID-19 outbreak.
Following the decision to close the railway, including Wansford Station cafe, on Friday 20th of March 2020 to protect the public and staff from COVID-19, the railway has lost out on vital income.
Most of the income raised from Santa Specials and other events and train services towards the end of 2019 has been spent of maintaining the railway’s infrastructure and engines, along with preparing for the 2020 seasons, before COVID-19 became a major threat to the UK.
Any support, whether donations or gift vouchers to spend when the line is back up and running, is greatly appreciated by Nene Valley Railway. For more information or to donate now, please visit their website by clicking here.
This fantastic video linked above has been kindly filmed and produced by Camera Drone UK to help support the Nene Valley Railway. Camera Drone UK specialises in drone filming for both TV and promotional media, with their brilliant footage being used on popular programmes such as:

- Channel 5’s “The Unstoppable Flying Scotsman”, “World’s most scenic railways” and “How the Victorians built Britain.”
