Are you renewing your membership? 

This is probably the most exciting time to join the Cholsey and Wallingford Railway since the 1980s. 

We have completed the historic platform canopy dating back to Brunel’s day, even before our railway opened in 1866. Plans are in hand to bring in a historic signal box, and we have received an additional grant to improve the station facilities at Wallingford.  Plans are being drawn up to rebuild a station. 

It possible to join on line below.

Enjoy a Members’ Running Day which is a great opportunity for members to visit Wallingford Station when it is not open to the public, to ride the train for free, and to give the staff feedback on how we are doing, and your ideas for what else we should be doing. 

The members running day is likely to be in Spring, at the start of our operating year. You will receive details in “The Bunk” magazine.

The opportunity to become a working Volunteer Member to help keep the railway in operation or help in restoration
