Brake Van Restoration

The YWR took delivery of brake van B955043 on 1 August 2018 – Yorkshire Day !

Restoration of this vehicle is now well underway thanks to generous donations and the skilled volunteers that we have. Our aim is to get it back into operational use during the 2021 season, so that we can give “Covid secure” brake van rides coupled behind our locomotive Sir Tatton Sykes.

We need your help to get to our final target of £8000 which will allow us to purchase the final tools and materials needed to complete this restoration.

We have already raised in excess of £ 5000, so “just need” a final £3000 to reach our target. To donate to the “Brake van restoration” campaign through Virgin Money Giving, please visit this page.
