Our day-to-day maintenance and restoration is funded by income from the trains we run throughout the year. But we regularly need to undertake restoration projects of major historical significance. And this is where you can help.

Have a look at the projects here and, if you can, please consider helping us to fund them.

171 - Getting To The Summit

We thank everybody who has donated to the 171 Appeal so far. Thanks to your generosity we have made a big step towards getting No.171 "Slieve Gullion" back in steam, something which is only becoming more urgent as the clock continues to tick down the boiler life of No.85. The pandemic constrained the time and finances available to work on No.171, but we are gearing up for the last big push!

Download the 171 Appeal Donation Form

We are still taking donations as there remains a lot to do to get No.171 back in traffic. You can use the Donate buttons above (put "171 Appeal" in the 'Add A Note' box), or download and return the Appeal form.

Thank you!

Note: In the event of this Appeal being oversubscribed the surplus will go towards the general fund of the RPSI and in making a donation you agree to this condition.
