The Bunk Line - Home of the Cholsey and Wallingford Railway Preservation Society 

Membership - Join the CWR for a range of benefits 

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

We are starting the station building programme with the reconstruction of a historic platform canopy dating back to Brunel’s day, even before our railway opened in 1866. Plans are in hand for the station building facing onto Hithercroft Road, based on Abingdon station which was demolished over a quarter of a century ago.

It is also a great time to join the CWR because the Board has reduced subscription costs by up to 40% (Individual Membership down from £20 to £12), and has improved the Members’ Benefits programme. They have also decided that all Membership Renewals will be at the end of March, at the start of our operating year.

And the actual process of joining has been simplified to make it possible to join on line below

The Benefits of Membership

The knowledge that your support is helping to preserve a part of our railway heritage

A free copy of "The Bunk" magazine which is produced three times a year, in the run-up to Easter, BunkFest, and Christmas

    4 Free Travel Vouchers* which can be used on all operating days except Santa Trains, these will be distributed to members with their new Membership Cards in the Easter Bunk magazine in March each year

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 a Mince Pie Special Day between Christmas and New Year.  You will receive details in your Christmas Bunk Magazine.
