PQR's Expansion Fund

As you know we raised £9000 in donations and pledges towards track for our extension towards the quarry.

As the discussions with the land owner for phase 2 has run on longer than expected (due to outside factors) we will be investing in our current length of line, to give a good base of operations for the next season.

If you visited us this year you will have bought your ticket and tea or coffee inside our loco shed/workshop, for this next season. We are planning to run more days in 2017 so the loco shed will not be a viable option, due to the engineering side of the railway is developing at a rapid pace.

We have come up with a solution, we are looking to raise £5000 to buy a new station building for Felin Fawr. Plans are also in place to put in a proper platform and car parking area. We will be looking to carry on raising funds after our target is reached to put in toilets and washing facilities.

Our plan is to purchase a 32ft x 10ft shipping container which has been done as a wooden cladded building. (pictured below)

This building can be moved in future when our rail head expands.

We are planning to install a ticket office area, small shop a tea and coffee machine along with a selection of pasties and cold snacks.

We are looking at adding a canopy on the platform side to keep you sheltered from the rain whilst boarding our train.

With the new platform location we will also be installing a new water tower and coaling facilities for the locomotives.

We will be posting constant updates on the amount raised.
