Donation Fares

Help us to preserve this historic railway and SAVE MONEY by choosing the Donation Fare.

The Donation Fare means that you make an additional voluntary donation of 10%, and in return, we will give you a voucher to spend in our cafés on a hot or cold non-alcoholic drink*. Please request a Basic Fare if you do not wish to pay by donation, but note that you will not receive a voucher.

If you are a UK taxpayer you may be able to Gift Aid your donation, and we claim an extra 25% of the fare from the Government at no cost to you. Gift aiding is extremely beneficial to us and aids our ongoing preservation efforts.

We also encourage the optional £1 donation that Carbon Offsets your journey – and we invest in projects that further our Carbon ‘Net Zero’ ambitions.

* Voucher is given for fares on tickets with a value of £16.50 or more.
