Charity number


The East Lancashire Railway Holdings Company (charitable arm) exists to support the preservation of the East Lancashire Railway from Heywood to Rawtenstall.

Recent projects have included the overhaul of Crab Steam Locomotive '13065'along witht he boiler overhaul of 80097, purchase and overhaul of three First Class Mark One coaches and the construction of a canopy on Bury's Platform 2, all of which have been made possible from donations.


Due to the developing situation with the Coronavirus the railway has, in line with Government advice, suspended all services until further notice.

As a registered charity this is devastating for us. We rely heavily on our generated income and this is highly likely to have severe financial consequences for us, but it is important we do our part to protect our employees, the public, and particularly our older volunteers. Please support us the best you can during this time to ensure our survival.
