Treble the Track



We now have 320 feet of track at Fimber Halt but we don’t want to stop at that…

Our aim is to extend the length of our running line towards Wetwang from 300’ to 900’, for which we need to raise around £30,000.

Can you help us Treble The Track by ‘sponsoring’ a sleeper?

To sponsor one sleeper (without fixings) costs £30. To sponsor one sleeper (with fixings) costs £50.

Perhaps you and a group of colleagues could ‘sponsor’ a rail, or even a whole track panel? To sponsor one 30’ rail costs £200. To sponsor one 30’ panel (rails, sleepers, fixings) costs £1200

Every sponsor will receive a certificate and have their name on our sponsors board.

To Treble The Track we will need approximately: 250 sleepers (and fixings); 20 rails (and fish plates); 400 tonnes of ballast

To ‘sponsor’ a sleeper, rail or panel or simply to donate to the Treble The Track campaign through Virgin Money Giving, please visit this page, or send a cheque payable to “Yorkshire Wolds Railway” to:

Treble the Track
Yorkshire Wolds Railway
Fimber Halt
Beverley Road
East Yorkshire
YO25 3HG

Please mark the back of the cheque and envelope “Treble the Track” and provide your name and address so we can send you your certificate.

Alternatively, please contact a member of staff on site. Our full contact details can be seen here.

Keep checking the “thermometer” in the visitor centre to see how we are doing!

From time to time, offers may become available which would allow us to obtain more track for the money donated. All money donated to this fund will be used to purchase track and related items (sleepers, fixings, ballast etc).

Track will not normally be delivered to the site a panel at a time. It is more economical for us to obtain several sections in one lorry load (typically six panels). Some may be delivered as parts. Thanks for your support!
