Support Railway museums

The Heritage Trust operates two museums, the Gauge Museum at Bishops Lydeard Station, and the other, the Blue Anchor Railway Museum based at Blue Anchor Station. Both depend on visitors’ donations and fundraising support.

Model Railway

Donations support the upkeep of the 00 gauge model railway. The layout was started thirty years ago and is continually being developed. We are a small team, mainly of Tracker volunteers (aged 14 – 18) and welcome all donations.

GWR Sleeping Car

The Trust acquired former GWR sleeping car no 9038 in 1986 and, after twenty years of work, returned it to traffic in 2006. The work was largely funded by visitor donations and members’ contributions supported by a grant from the Science Museum. The vehicle requires ongoing maintenance, and your support funds this.

Heritage Carriages Project

The Trust has started an ambitious project to restore a rake of vintage GWR coaches to traffic on the WSR. The youngest of these coaches in now a hundred years old and significant fundraising is now required to undertake this work.
