AUGUST 2021 WEB UPDATE - TORNADO VISITS TO FHRT

LAST 2021 VISITS - 02 SEPTEMBER 2021 AND 11 SEPTEMBER 2021

On these dates the Trust welcomes Members and Visitors to view the locomotive being turned on the turntable from about 2.45pm onwards  - entrance is via the Duthie Park, near the Community Garden. All visitors are required to observe current Covid rules.

While there is no specific entry charge, visitors are invited to make a donation towards the running costs of the Heritage Centre and Turntable. The Trust is seeking sponsorship for a number of projects including the newly arrived Brake Van. Please speak to any of the Trustees for more information.


The Ferryhill Railway Heritage Trust was established in 2007 to take over the remaining building and turntable of the former Ferryhill locomotive depot, restore it and transform the site into a working railway heritage site for the North East of Scotland. In this endeavour, the Ferryhill Railway Heritage Trust has had widespread support.

The original Trustees of the Ferryhill Railway Heritage Trust were nominated by the Royal Deeside Railway Preservation Society, the Deeside Railway Company, the Bon Accord Locomotive Society, and the Aberdeen Model Railway Club, demonstrating the commitment of these societies to the success of the FRHT. .

The Ferryhill Railway Heritage Trust is keen to support direct participation in its activities. Becoming a member of the Ferryhill Railway Trust creates that opportunity. Please contact the Membership Secretary for more information..



The Trust

The Ferryhill Railway Heritage Trust was formed in 2007 and granted Scottish Charity status on 14th November 2008 and agreement was reached with Aberdeen City Council for the trust to take over the 1850 Engine shed.

Recent changes to Charity Law has allowed the Trust to move from being an unincorporated charity to a Scottish Charitable Incorporated Organisation, SCIO, regulated by the Office of the Scottish Charity Regulator, OSCR. Our charity number is SC 040039.

Trains

The locomotive and station photographs have been donated from several private collections and individuals, which we thank, firstly allowing us to use the photographs and secondly for preserving the history of Aberdeen station (none of Ferryhill station exist, unless you know different) and of Ferryhill MPD from its steam days to its diesel days and to its closure.

The loco photographs range from the humble dock engines right through to the main line express locos and also give a small insight to the life and visitors to Ferryhill through the years. Enjoy.
