Group Buys Dunaskin

Ayrshire Railway Preservation Group has concluded the purchase of a significant portion of the Dunaskin site. Included in the purchase are : the four-road Locomotive Shed built by the NCB in 1964, the Wagon Repair Shops, the Station and platform at Dunaskin, the former Ambulance Station, the Weigh Bridge, and all associated land. All other buildings and land we currently occupy, including the Engineers’ Shop is now secured through a ten year lease. The purchase was achieved by utilising ARPG funds previously set aside for the purpose, plus substantial donations from Members raised via an Appeal set up earlier this year. Significant contributions were received from East Ayrshire Council and Cumnock & Doon Valley Minerals Trust, for which the Group is most grateful.
