As the Battlefield Line Railway continues to move forward, a new company has been formed to focus on the future of the line, deliver upcoming projects and secure the funding and donations required for such initiatives.

The Battlefield Line Trust Limited (Registered company No. 11500344) is now appealing for donations from the members of the Shackerstone Railway Society, as well as non-members too. The money raised will be used towards ensuring the future of the railway & exciting new projects along the length of the railway which we hope to communicate to members of Shackerstone Railway Society via “The Warrior” magazine, and through a new communications board at Shackerstone Station for everyone.

There is a list of benefits that are available for those who donate to the railway through this scheme, which can be seen below. Each benefit is paid once the donation level has been reached (ie: 10 x £10 donations will result in a polo shirt being awarded as the total donated is £100). You can even set up a regular standing order using out BACS bank details at the bottom of this page.
