Can you help support the DFLG through the winter?

The majority of our income is generated through steaming fees. Over the winter, our opportunities to steam in revenue earning service reduces hugely. However, it is also the time in which restoration projects are advanced, owing to the natural down time. It is important that we continue to fund raise as much as we can. Can you help us?

You can donate to any locomotive or item of rolling stock, or make a general donation to the DFLG.
