The Trust are pleased to announce the purchase of two BR 16Ton Mineral Wagons. These wagons, once restored, will kick start our plans to recreate a demonstration coal train.
Coal traffic was the lifeblood of the S&D, with the many collieries along the northern section of the line, seeing hundreds of these wagons every week.
The Trust is appealing for donations towards to the transportation and restoration of these iconic vehicles. Both currently reside at the Swanage Railway and will require replacement flooring and a good rub down prior to painting.
Any donation will be great fully received, and will help the once common sight of coal wagons return to the S&D!
Donations can be made via our website, or in person at the station! Remember to fill in a Gift Aid Form to make your donation go even further!
