Cash For Cover (OP4)

The initial Cash for Cover Appeal has already enabled us to construct the shell of Operation Undercover Phase 4 (OP4), the Horsted Keynes Carriage Shed Extension.  Our carriage maintenance activities are under cover at last, and the first of the 26 historic vehicles are now stored in the second part of the shed.

We are now looking to raise a further £150,000 on top of cash currently available for the project to clad the Eastern wall, and most importantly, the Heritage Skills Centre, a two-storey building on the eastern side of the shed, for which the steel superstructure and roof is already fully funded.  This will include a class-room/meeting room, a training workshop, trim shop and varnish shop, a small office and a records store.  There is still more to be raised to complete the project; please continue to give generously!

Please do watch Nicholas Owen's Video, produced at the time of the original Cash for Cover appeal.

The Bluebell Railway is justifiably renowned for its fantastic collection of vintage carriages. We still have over 20 pre-nationalisation carriages stored in the open - to conserve them for the future it is vital to secure them under cover as soon as possible.

The improved facilities for matintenance are already paying dividends, with an increased area now available for the vital mechanical maintenance and lifting of carriages; to make this more productive we need to complete the walls!
