Carriage Shed Appeal
With the opening of the new Abergwili Junction extension, the Gwili Railway is now embarking on the next exciting phase of development. Like many heritage lines, the Gwili Railway makes use of the standard British Railways Mark 1 carriages. A storage facility is badly needed to protect them from the worst of the Welsh weather. The new shed will hold four Mark 1 carriages on each road.
We have several historic items of stock which relate to Wales. The public display of such vehicles and artefacts is seen as essential in informing and educating our visitors. The carriage shed will allow us to obtain further historic Welsh carriages for display and create a educational classroom facility. Potential funding partners are fully supportive of a building with an emphasis on display, education and storage. The full cost of the proposed building will be £300,000 and we have informal pledges of over half this amount provided we can raise the remainder.
We are therefore looking to raise a further £100,000 (we have raised 50k so far) to complete the funding package and to allow construction to begin. Just Giving is the easiest way for you to donate online, cheques can be sent to the railway by post.
