    2 of the 3 XP64s have been scrapped (SK and FK), only the TSO remains and that is down by the mainline connection, out of view from the platform.

    As a variation from straight fundraising.
    Would any of the stored wagons be available at a fair rate?

    Hi Bryan,

    Rob is right in that a lot of the vehicles are privately owned, however if you have something particular in mind feel free to send me a PM and I can pass your enquiry to the relevant people.

    Hi all from the DFR facebook page
    Good news for our Mark 2 Carriage Appeal - plase share!

    We are pleased to announce that we have (almost!) reached the halfway stage of our appeal, and, subject to final surveys, will be purchasing the first coach in the coming weeks. It will then receive the required brake modifications, and will arrive at the DFR ready to add to our running set this year.

    As a reminder, these Mark 2a coaches have been identified as the quickest way to enable us to thoroughly renovate our existing coaching fleet. In the medium to long term future, the extra capacity will be very much needed as we look to extend northwards into the Forest towards Speech House and Cinderford, and your generous donations can help us to make it happen.

    You can donate through the following link: https://www.justgiving.com/crowdfunding/dfr-mk2-coaches

    OR

    Cash and cheques can be sent directly to our HQ at Norchard:

    DFRS Coach Appeal,
    Dean Forest Railway
    Forest Road
    Lydney
    Glos GL15 4ET
