About Vale of Berkeley Railway Charitable Trust

We're bringing heritage trains back to the Sharpness Branch - creating a tourist attraction and education attraction to show how this charming line served the community and took goods from dock to door.
Our aim is to reopen the Sharpness branch line, in Gloucestershire, to passengers as a heritage railway tourist attraction, rebuilding some of the key structures that once adorned this historic joint GWR & LMS Severn & Wye Railway. We have established an engineering facility based in the Old Engine House by the docks, to restore heritage locomotives, rolling stock and other items from a bygone era, and to serve as an initial base for the Vale of Berkeley Railway. Now we are working on developing the original Sharpness freight sidings site, as the next phase in our plans to establish a Heritage Railway operation towards Berkeley.
