Trust Chairman Chris Austin writes:

A generous donation to the railway of £30,000, 37,500 with Gift Aid), has been made by Jamie Hooper from Worthing following a visit he made to the railway last week.  Part of Jamie’s kind gift will form a huge contribution to completing the outstanding trackwork at Doniford to allow trains to continue to use this key section of the line, while protecting the historic Doniford Halt alongside which the track to be replaced runs.  The remainder will be used to help provide much needed volunteer accommodation at the southern end of the line, perhaps using a static Mark III sleeping car.
