Make a Donation to DCDR
We are entirely staffed by volunteers and rely on ticket sales and donations to keep railway heritage alive and accessible to the public. Find out how you can help.
As a volunteer-run not-for-profit charity, this money is so important to our museum as we don’t receive government funding and rely on the support of people young and old to preserve and care for our unique collection now and for the generations to come and can spend it where we need to the most – ensuring your visit is as memorable and enjoyable as possible and helping grow our little line into a bigger one.
