Full steam ahead for £1.8m rail campaign

Have your say

A £1.88million fund-raising campaign has been launched by volunteers of a heritage railway to fulfil dreams of being fully operational by 2020.

Dedicated members of the Aln Valley Railway (AVR) have unveiled the Let’s Get To Alnmouth Appeal and are urging as many people as possible to pledge financial support.

Ambitions of reopening the branchline between Alnwick and Alnmouth have spanned nearly two decades and work finally started at the town’s Lionheart station site in 2012. Now a major push to raise funds to complete the job is full steam ahead.
