General Fund For
Diesel Railcar Restoration
One of the most frequently asked questions is the possibility of the diesel railcars being restored to working condition, and much work was carried out during a 1998-1999 restoration which was halted owing to budgetary constraints. The Association are very keen to see these historic vehicles returned to use but as such no project has yet been established. Having a fund in place should work commence has been deemed desirable and you can donate to this by helping us ain an a number of ways as detailed below. Please contact chairman Bill Cubbon for any furher details, we always welcome feedback on this or any potential project.
THIS IS A GENERAL FUND AND CURRENTLY HAS NO TARGET
The Association’ s involvement with the diesel railcars dates back to 2007 when a report was commissioned by Alan Keef Ltd., to ascertain potential costs in completing the restoration which had commenced in 199 but was halted owing to budgetary constraints. Since this time the units hav remained in storage in the workshops complex. The report commissioned at the the time can however be viewed in full by following the link below:-
