The Middy Appeal

As a charity, the Middy relies on donations of both time and money for operations and maintenance. In these Covid times we need your help more than ever. Please consider sponsoring a sleeper or sleepers to help with the extension of the line, or sponsor a boiler stay or stays to help complete the refurbishment of Hudswell Clarke no. 1604. Both these projects are well advanced and completion will ensure we can run our heritage line for years to come.

Thanks in advance for your help.

We are running two specific appeals currently, our Track Extension and the 1604 Restoration Project

Track Extension Appeal

The MSLR track extension project will more than double the length of the Middy to approximately 1km. We have recently completed laying new track work beyond the public footpath crossing and are well on the way to our final destination.

1604 Restoration Project

Help keep steam alive on the ‘Middy’ with the restoration of our own locomotive, Hudswell Clarke no. 1604.
