Support

Supporting Surrey’s Heritage Rail

In addition to volunteering and donations, the railway relies on the support of the community, and local businesses and corporations by way of goods and services gifted in-kind.

These contributions, along with Donations, Membership involvement and our wonderful Volunteers, are so important in helping the society to achieve our successes and advance the various projects and restoration initiatives that allow the railway to continue.

There are many ways that you or your company can help to support the society including offering goods and services that go towards a specific event or project.

For a complete list of opportunities, see below.

Support and Sponsorship Opportunities

Event Support

FVHRS runs many events throughout the year, including our highly anticipated holiday experiences and recognition events. Your support would help us with events such as:

Program Support

We are very proud to share the rich history of the BCER through programs for local schools and organizations.

Visits can be tailored to fit a particular lesson or unit on some aspect of public rail transportation that is centered on the BCER, or rail safety in general.

Your support will help us with programs like:

  • Surrey Schools Tours
School visits

Exhibit Support

The exhibits we are involved in are enjoyed by the general public and highly anticipated by a wide range of audiences.

Your support will help our society participate in special exhibits such as:

  • Surrey Live Steam Exhibit
  • The Classic Cars Exhibit

Project Support

We have many special projects on the go, with the goal of keeping the history of the BCER alive and well.

These projects require resources and funding to undertake and we rely on the business community to support us in these endeavours. Your support will help with projects such as:

  • Newton Centre Station
  • Sullivan Passing Track

Revitalization and Restoration Projects

The revitalization and restoration of the BCER is the most important goal of FVHRS. This is a huge undertaking and one that wouldn’t be possible without the generous support of local businesses and communities.

Supporting us in these initiatives will help with such important restoration projects as:

  • The completion of restoration of Car 1304, “The Connaught”
  • Refitting of Car 1207
  • Refitting of Car 1231
