Wensleydale Railway PLC

The Wensleydale Railway PLC (Company number 04093919) operates the railway. The Wensleydale Railway is one of the only heritage railways in the country that is still considered to be part of the national railway network. This is to facilitate the use by the Ministry of Defence (MOD) who operates trains to and from the railhead at Redmire.

The railway is therefore required to operate as a commercial concern and we need to be a PLC to run services. The PLC Board of Directors takes full responsibility for the safe operation of the railway. They are all volunteers and do not receive any remuneration  for the work provided. They do it for the love of the line and the desire to see the railway grow and prosper.
