On 17 August, the Trust was advised by the National Heritage Lottery Fund that their recent application for support from the NHLF Emergency Fund has been approved in full. The Trust will get details from the NHLF in the next few days on timing.

Trust chairman Chris Austin welcomed the grant, saying, “This will allow us to be Covid secure when we are able to reopen the museums again, and to resume work on carriage restoration while also protecting the unrestored carriages with covers. The application was carefully crafted, and the result is great for the railway and an important step towards welcoming visitors again.”
