Here is how you can help . . .
LNERCA is a volunteer run charity, entirely independent of the NYMR.
Funding for its restoration projects comes from membership subscriptions, bequests, charitable donations and grants.
The cost of a typical coach restoration project is anything from
£50,000 upwards, despite the fact that much of the labour required is provided voluntarily by LNERCA members.
Purchases from our shop also supplement this income (so please visit our shop page for more details).
Donations can be made with an internet bank transfer to our bank account which is Lloyds Bank, sort code 30-63-64, account no. 27410460
When you make donations out of your net income, the charity reclaims the tax, which you paid on that part of your gross income or capital gains. For every £1 you give as a donation, we are able to reclaim another 25p.
The Association’s current major project, supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund
The project will enable people to learn about railway travel in Victorian times by experiencing it for themselves. The coach has been partially restored externally, but its interior requires almost complete reconstruction.
Apart from ECJS189, LNERCA has another 14 vehicles waiting to be restored to working order.
