Our railway is closed

Due to the ongoing situation with Covid-19, we are closed to the public and all visitors for the rest of 2020. Sadly, this includes the popular Christmas and Halloween events. 

It is not possible to book any tickets at this time.

Please see our Covid-19 appeal page for more details.


Renew your membership
Renew your DCDR membership either online or by post.

The membership year runs from January to December, so make a New Year’s Resolution and get your renewals in on time. We make this really easy now with an online PayPal system, so you don’t even have to go to the post box if you don’t want to.

You can still renew by post. You should receive renewal forms each December/January, but you can download and print the form from this page if you wish. Note that all membership renewals must be received by March 31st, otherwise your membership is deemed to have lapsed.

Please remember to register for Gift Aid with us if you haven’t already. You can download this form below. Alternatively, you can choose the Gift Aid option during the PayPal payment process, which is much easier.

Renewal by post

First, download the Membership Renewal Form. Print this out and fill it in – and please fill in the Gift Aid details at the bottom of the form if you are a UK taxpayer, it gives us almost another 30% on top of your payment.

You can pay your membership fees by enclosing a cheque or postal order for the required payment with your form. Send your form and payment to:
