ADOPT AN ENGINE

 

The Kirklees Light Railway was established in 1991 and has since grown to become one of West Yorkshire's favourite family attractions and heritage railways.

Unfortunately, the COVID-19 pandemic has resulted in a desperate situation for the railway as the doors have had to be closed indefinitely, meaning that all sources of income for the railway have ceased until operations can resume.

The KLR is a small private business and survives on the income generated by ticket sales, retails sales and catering sales. All of these income streams are now closed but we still have bills to pay. The costs of maintaining 3.5 miles of track, 7 miles of boundaries and the associated stations/facilities are not on the small side. WE NEED YOUR HELP.

We are launching our new ADOPT AN ENGINE scheme which will help keep the railway alive in these unprecedented times and will ensure the KLR is here for many years to come, preserving the heritage and history of the local area (and providing a fantabulous day out for ALL visitors).

Whichever engine you choose to adopt, please remember that your contribution will be vital in keeping the KLR alive.
