The Vale of Berkeley Railway’s aim is to restore the station at Sharpness and run heritage tourist trains from Sharpness to Berkeley!

Their aim is to reopen the Sharpness branch line to passengers as a heritage railway tourist attraction, rebuilding some of the key structures that once adorned this historical joint GWR & LMS Severn & Wye Railway.

They have established an engineering facility based in the old Diesel Engine Shed by the docks in order to restore heritage locomotives, rolling stock and other suitable items from a by-gone era and to serve as an initial base for the Vale of Berkeley Railway.

They also plan to restore the original Sharpness station site, with suitable facilities in order to re-open the line and run heritage trains.

Currently the Engine Shed is open for volunteers, who have joined as a member, to help with restoration projects on most weekdays from 9am to 5pm and Saturdays from 10am to 4pm. For details on joining the railway please see the membership page HERE!
