Locomotive Maintenance Pit

Locomotive Maintenance Pit

As part of the Railway's continued expansion we would like to install a locomotive maintenance pit at Chinnor - which means we can hopefully attract owners of 'foreign' engines to bring them to our line (and who will then be confident we are able to provide the full range of facilities owners will expect). Note: Previously we have had owners decline hiring their engine to us due to the lack of facilities, and potential volunteers have shied away due to the onerous working conditions.

After the installation of a pit the Railway will strongly benefit in the following ways:

The cost of a pit will be substantial – more than £50,000 – and that’s using our own volunteers with free labour to help install it!  

How can I help?

Thank you for your generous contribution and it is truly appreciated.
