SAVE OUR SERVICES !

The Royal Deeside Railway needs your help to guarantee that they can restart railway services in 2021.  2020 has been a tough year for everyone and the Royal Deeside Railway is no different.  Unfortunately, due to COVID-19 all the train services and events at the Royal Deeside Railway have had to be cancelled.  The volunteers were hoping that they would be able to operate their successful Santa Specials as usual, however this is no longer possible.

Whilst we have had no income this year, we continue to pay bills and maintenance costs.  Consequently, the railway now has a funding shortfall, and there is no guarantee that services can restart in 2021; operating through Birkenbaud crossing to the new Riverside Halt platform as planned.

We are appealing to our friends, supporters and passengers who would normally travel along the length of the railway, to support the Royal Deeside Railway Preservation Society in achieving this aim by donating to our cause.
