Become a Member

Please support the railway and become a member of the Poulton and Wyre Railway Society. Our object is to re-open the line from Poulton to Fleetwood for passenger and Heritage trains.

We already have a Fowler shunter under refurbishment and very nearly ready for operating on the line.

Also we are in the process of purchasing a D.M.U. which we intend to use for a passenger service in the very near future.

Benefits

Once you have joined us you can, if you wish, become a working volunteer and attend the sessions on a Saturday morning and a Wednesday morning, helping fellow volunteers to carry out the many tasks associated with clearing the line ready for trains to run.

The benefits of being a member are the opportunity to work alongside like-minded men and women, making new friends learning new skills,  out in the fresh air, and keeping fit.

We also have a Quarterly magazine “On Track” free to members to download in pdf.
