What Do We Need?

Bringing Halesworth’s history alive

  • Original artefacts, paperwork, and equipment from the 1879 Southwold Railway, ideally from the Halesworth, Holton, Mells and Wenhaston area
  • More members! We particularly need members who can look after the website, and those with expertise in grant applications and sponsorship
  • Offers to sell land, on or near the original narrow gauge railway trackbed – no section would be too small – isolated sections are fine – rental or lease, as well as purchase, considered
  • Narrow gauge railway equipment (rails, fixings, rolling stock, locomotives) which can be adapted to the railway’s three-foot-gauge (910mm). Rolling stock built to the common 750mm (two foot six inches) gauge can be adapted, and 1000mm (metre gauge) is particularly appropriate. Battery locomotives are particularly welcome, as they would fit in to the Society’s wish to be environmentally-friendly.
