About Gift Aid
Gift Aid is available to UK tax payers, enabling the Midland Railway Trust to reclaim 25% of the amount paid from the government. Gift Aid visitors will receive vouchers to spend in the shops and buffets as a thank you for payment by this method. This represents excellent value for the visitor as well as benefiting the Midland Railway Trust.
The narrow gauge Golden Valley Light Railway will be operating during this event using locomotives and passenger carriages used when the GVLR first began operating. Please note a separate fare is payable on this railway.
